Assistant State’s Attorney John Pleisse prosecuted the case.

3/21/2019: Maryland State Police arrested a Leonardtown man accused of stabbing his roommate late Sunday night in St. Mary’s County

The suspect, Gary Flint Jr., 37, is accused of stabbing his 41-year-old female roommate following an argument inside a residence on the 21700 block of Potomac View Drive in Leonardtown.

Flint was taken into custody at about 6:10 a.m. on Monday morning after barricading himself in the home for more than five hours. He is being charged with first- and second-degree attempted murder and first- and second-degree assault.

Shortly after 10:20 p.m. on Sunday, troopers from the Maryland State Police Leonardtown Barrack received a call about an assault in progress at a home on the 21700 block of Potomac View Drive. A witness told police that the victim was being attacked by a man who lived in the residence.

While traveling to the residence, a trooper found the victim, who appeared to be injured. The victim told the trooper that she had returned home earlier in the evening and was approached by her roommate, later identified as Flint. She said that an argument soon began and Flint assaulted her and then stabbed her with a sharp object multiple times. The victim was transported to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment of her injuries.

The victim told investigators that she and another person in the home were able to escape, but that Flint remained in the residence. A perimeter was soon established around the home as Flint refused to exit despite multiple attempts being made to contact him.

At approximately 4:45 a.m., members of the Maryland State Police Special Tactical Assault Team Element entered the home and found Flint in an upstairs bedroom. He was arrested at the scene and taken to MedStar St. Mary’s Hospital for medical treatment.

The investigation in ongoing.

      Show me an article where the cops in this county shot first and asked questions later on a minority. I will wait. On second thought, I wont wait, you wont find one.

      You’re pathetic, you know cops are terrified to shoot a black now, even in life threatening situations theyre scared and second guess alot more now up to the point of risking their life. Why? Because you ignorant worthless blacks will do everything in your power to ruin his life and reputation even if they’re clearly in the right. It’s pathetic and than we have these ignorant clueless racists like you saying that complete and utter B.S..go kill yourself you waste of skin.

      Rejection? Where does it say that? It says roommate… Can’t read well, can you? He most likely had no weapon in his hand. Let’s see where cops have shot someone empty handed? You’re the true trash here. Loser

          National Crime Data base. Nice try. Now be the BeGone Police. Facts are like that – they don’t always relay what you believe. Now back to your brainwash bubble.

    All knives used in stabbings were made in the US. If the knives hadn’t been sold in the first place, this stabbing would not have happened. The only responsible knife owner is a butter knife owner.

    How was he found in an upstairs bedroom by police at 445 than taken into custody at 6:10?? Typical article from the sherriffs office,more proof you dimwits on here shouldnt believe everything in their reports.

    • Big Cookie on March 22, 2018 at 10:00 am

      Dear Anonymous,

      First, its spelled Sheriff. Second, this report was released my the State Police, not the Sheriff.

        STILL couldnt answer my question though huh? Interesting you ignore that but correct a one letter typo, LOL ok loser. KYS.

        • Speaking of Loser on July 22, 2019 at 1:03 pm

          That doesnt seem unusual to me. They entered at 4:45 (not took him into custody, “entered the home”). And had to clear each and every room, bathroom, closet, etc on the first floor. Then made their way up to the second floor. Where they again cleared each and every room, bathroom, closet, etc. Might have taken then 25 minutes to clear the downstairs. Lets say another 25 to find him. Now we are talking (approx) 5:35. Now that they know where he is, they can begin to have a conversation with him, try to deescalate the situation, and take him into custody. Entering the house, to finding him, taking him into custody, exiting the residence with him, and putting him into the police car could very well have taken 90 minutes. So what is the problem?

        • Anonymous on July 22, 2019 at 3:05 pm

          Arrested at the residence at 4:45
          Taken to St. Mary’s Hospital for treatment.
          After treatment, taken into custody at 6:10

          Still confused?

    Looks like his white privilege kicked in. Oh wait…..

    • Duh on July 22, 2019 at 12:58 pm

      You are correct Malcolm. While the black criminals in this county get a slap on the wrist for their first 9 offenses, this dude gets maxed out.

    • Louis X on July 22, 2019 at 10:27 pm

      That only happens for violent black offenders. The ones that have been given multiple opportunities to fix themselves.

    • Malcolm X on July 24, 2019 at 5:26 pm

      You mean like the black dude that shot up a car and got the 4 years?

      Therefore, there are no white people with life sentences in prison. Care to place a bet on that, Genius?

      Nothing will happen, prison is full of pieces of shi# that have done the same or worse. He’ll fit right in, another turd in the bowl. If you’re looking for chivalry, it ain’t in prison.

    Leonardtown is a nice place without worthless violent scum like him being there. I hope that he gets stabbed in prison.

    What, no white privilege, how can this be?????????

    • Deshawn on July 23, 2019 at 5:08 pm

      25 years is the max sentence foe white people. Other races have much larger sentences

      • Dah Shawn on July 24, 2019 at 8:14 am

        How do you know what the sentences are? Are you a lawyer, or racist? There’s no need to answer, everyone already knows.

      • Blackk Jackk on July 24, 2019 at 5:44 pm

        Bullshi#. And it’s longer not larger, racist troll.

      • Dumb and Dumber on July 24, 2019 at 7:56 pm

        Correct max, everyone knows there are no white people in prison serving a life sentence. Even Daaaah-shawn knows that.

    This article does not make sense!!! I am the victim my name is Barbara Walters, the witness was not a witness she’s my 13 year old daughter and was also a victim held hostage on second floor until I arrived home from work at 10:00 pm. Flint confronted me in the kitchen of home where he had rented a bedroom since December 2017, and was due to leave that Feb 2018 however his plans fell through and was staying an added 30 days. I was instantly asked by Flint why did I call police, twice ! Followed by him grabbing my phone from counter walked towards hallway came around barstools attacked me jumping upon me ,I screamed to my daughter call 911!!! This wasn’t a relationship!! Strictly a landlord tenant scenario
