CAMBRIDGE — A Cambridge man faces armed robbery, assault and other charges in connection with an alleged carjacking and stabbing on Saturday morning, Sept. 26, in Cambridge.

A Cambridge Police Department spokesman said officers responded to the report of a stabbing on 700 block of Pine Street around 8 a.m. Saturday.

Public Information Officer Capt. Justin Todd said police learned prior to their arrival that the victim of the stabbing was at the local emergency room.

Officers met with the man, who had a deep laceration on the tip of his nose. Todd said the victim told them he was sitting in his parked vehicle in the Pine Street area when he was approached by another man who opened his passenger side door and sat down inside the vehicle.

The victim said the suspect told him to get out of the vehicle, and when the victim refused, the suspect allegedly displayed a knife and stabbed the victim, causing an injury to his nose, according to Todd.

Todd said after the victim exited the vehicle and fled, the suspect then allegedly stole the vehicle.

Police located the vehicle on Gay Street. When officers attempted to contact the driver, he fled in the vehicle, Todd said. A short pursuit took place until the suspect ran the vehicle off the roadway and into a ditch near the county pool on Virginia Avenue.

Officers made contact with the suspect, who was identified as 20-year-old Tramelle L. Williams of Cambridge. Police allege Williams had a kitchen-style knife on his lap, and a second knife and suspected heroin were also located.

Williams was charged with armed robbery, armed carjacking, first-degree assault and weapon charges, along with other related charges.

Williams is being held at the Dorchester County Detention Center on no bond. Police said Williams also has active warrants through Wicomico County and also Dorchester County.

The victim was treated and later released from the hospital, police said.
