FRUITLAND, Md.- Fruitland police have arrested a Salisbury man accused of beating another person so severely that it left the victim hospitalized. 

Matthew John Murray Heacock, 22, was taken into custody on Sept. 15 and charged with first-degree assault.

Fruitland police said that earlier that day, officers were flagged down in the area of Clyde and Camden avenues by a person who stated a friend had been assaulted and needed an ambulance. Officers found the victim lying face down in a driveway with severe injuries to the face and head.

The victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center and then transported to the Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore. Police said the suspect had fled before officers arrived, but witnesses directed them to his location. 

Heacock is being held in the Wicomico County Detention Center on $50,000 bond.
