WILLARDS, Md.– Maryland State Police and local police agencies are searching for a Willards man accused stabbing an acquaintance early Tuesday morning during a gathering in Wicomico County.

Ramon S. Avelino, 48, of the 9200 block of Green Branch Road in Willards, is charged on a warrant with attempted first-degree murder, attempted second-degree murder, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and use of a deadly weapon.

Police identified the victim as Irneo Rivera, 25, of the 9100 block of Green Branch Road in Willards. Rivera continues to undergo treatment for multiple stab wounds at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, according to investigators.

Authorities said that just before 2 a.m. Tuesday, Maryland state troopers from the Salisbury Barrack were dispatched to a reported stabbing at Avelino's home. Troopers found Rivera and observed he had sustained what appeared to be several stab wounds. EMS personnel responded and Rivera was transported to PRMC.

Investigators from the Wicomico Bureau of Investigation responded, as did MSP crime scene technicians. Police said further investigation indicated that the victim and several other people, including Avelino, had gathered at his home to socialize on Monday night. Invesitgators said that early Tuesday morning, some type of altercation occurred at which time Avelino allegedly stabbed Rivera.

Crime scene technicians recovered more than one knife at the scene, according to police. The knives and other evidence have been forwarded for forensic analysis at the MSP Forensic Sciences Division laboratory.

Avelino is believed to still be in the Delmarva region, possibly driving a mid-1990s blue or black Chevrolet Blazer, with unknown Delaware registration. Avelino should be considered armed and dangerous, according to police.

Anyone with information about Avelino's location is urged to contact police immediately. In addition to 911, persons can call the MSP Salisbury Barrack at (410) 749-3101. Crimes Solvers of the Lower Eastern Shore is offering a reward of up to $1,000 for information leading to the arrest of Avelino. Calls to Crimes Solvers should be made to (410) 548-1776.
