Attempted 1st Degree Murder Suspect Arrested in Stabbing/Robbery

Upper Marlboro, MD…The Prince George's County Office of the Sheriff’s Fugitive Apprehension & Surveillance Team (FAST) reported the arrest of Randy Huston of Riverdale, MD on an arrest warrant for Attempted First Degree Murder obtained by the Prince George’s County Police Department on October 1, 2014.

According to the warrant, on September 30, 2014, Huston asked another male for a ride home from a Brandywine, MD gas station. When they arrived, Huston produced a pocket knife and demanded that the driver hand over his wallet and phone. When the victim refused, Huston stabbed him six times in both arms, a leg and above his left eye.

A struggle ensued, causing both men to fall out of the vehicle. The victim was able to get back into the car and drive away. The warrant further states that a short time later, Maryland State Police stopped the victim for a traffic violation and noticed his injuries. The victim relayed the robbery attempt to Troopers who contacted the Prince George’s County Police Department. The victim was transported to a local hospital.

Upon receiving the warrant, FAST Deputies began an investigation and determined that Huston could be located at a residence in Charles County, MD. On December 5, the Charles County Sheriff’s Office located Huston in a parked vehicle outside of a residence in Charles County. When deputies attempted to initiate a traffic stop, Huston sped away, refusing to stop his vehicle. He lost control of the vehicle and crashed into a wooded area before fleeing into the woods. All attempts to locate Huston were unsuccessful.

On December 7, FAST Deputies, members of the Prince George’s County Sheriff’s Office Domestic Violence Intervention Division, and County Police located Huston at an address in the 5700 block of 64th Avenue in Riverdale, MD. With permission to search the residence, deputies located Huston hiding in a crawl space on the second level. The suspect came out of the crawl space and resisted arrest, but was eventually taken into custody. He was transported to Prince George’s County Hospital to be treated for injuries sustained in the car crash.  Huston was medically cleared and transported to the Prince George’s County Department of Corrections.

He is also charged with First and Second Degree Assault, Armed Robbery, Attempted Armed Carjacking and Robbery.
