DENTON, Md. - Police have now arrested a suspect wanted for stabbing two women early Thursday morning in Caroline County.

Investigators arrested 45-year-old Sean McGill of Denton Friday night at the home on Andersontown Road where the stabbing happened.

According to Maryland State Police, 33-year-old Heather Hill of Greensboro, Md., and 53-year-old Jackie Roach of Camden, Del., were dropped off at a home in the 9100 block of Andersontown Road in Denton at 9:30 p.m. Wednesday, with the intention of visiting a friend who lives there.

Police say unknown to the women, Hill's ex-boyfriend, McGill, was also inside. According to state troopers, Hill had recently ended the relationship and they had been arguing throughout the day Wednesday. When Hill got to the house, police say she and McGill began arguing. That's when the homeowner asked all three of them to leave, according to police. When the women made their way toward the door, police say McGill assaulted Hill and told her to stay inside.

Police say the three guests then made their way outside, where Hill and McGill continued to argue. According to police the man assaulted Hill by "throwing her to the ground, biting her nose, and then dragging her back to the front porch of the house." Police say McGill then entered the home through a window, and the two women ran to another house to get help.

According to police, McGill then ran up behind the women at a neighbor's house and started to punch Hill. Police say according to Roach, McGill chased her, too, when she started yelling at him to stop, and punched, hit and stabbed her in the hand.

According to investigators, McGill then ran off, and Hill collapsed, bleeding heavily from the neck and head.

State troopers from the Easton Barrack were called to the scene around 1 a.m. They say Hill was flown to the University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center for treatment, while Roach was treated on the scene and not immediately taken to a hospital.

McGill is facing several charges including  attempted murder, first and second
degree assault, reckless endangerment and false imprisonment after this stabbing in Caroline County.
