On June 10, 2018, at approximately 3:00 a.m., Corporal James Stone of the St. Mary’s County Sheriff’s Office responded to Rosewood Drive in Lexington Park for a reported assault.

Prior to entering the residence, police observed a Hispanic male exit from behind a shed in the corner of the yard that leads to the woods. The male exiting from behind the shed had no shirt or shoes and was wearing blue utility pants.

The described subject was later identified as Jose X Quinones Correa, 31, of Lexington Park.

A witness took Stone to a bedroom where the corporal saw a Hispanic male lying in a large pool of blood on the floor. The victim was struggling to breathe, both of his eyes were bruised/swollen shut, he had a large lump across the center of his forehead. The victim had blood across his face, arms, hands, upper torso, and legs, and blood was continuing to hemorrhage from his mouth and nose. Police had to place the victim into a rescue position to prevent him from aspirating on his own blood and bodily fluid. EMS responded and took over care of the victim.

The victim was transported by helicopter to PG Shock Trauma Center for incapacitating injuries, where he is currently on intubation for breathing, and has fractured bones in his face and severe head trauma.

Police spoke with the witness who advised that he went to sleep at 10:00 p.m., prior to going to sleep, he spoke with the victim who stated he was going to Cadillac Jacks. The witness told police woke up at approximately 2:45 a.m., to lights on in the common area of the house and observed Correa sitting on a bed talking on the phone when he overheard Correa say, “I think he is dead.” The witness then got up to see what was wrong, and observed the victim lying on the floor unresponsive in a large puddle of blood. The witness asked Correa what happened, and Correa replied, “He fell down.”

The witness further stated Correa exited the house and entered the woods wearing a red in color shirt and tan athletic shorts. Correa had changed his clothing to the blue pants with no shirt or shoes. He also had grass clippings all the way up his leg.

Correa was found with swollen knuckles, blood on his hand and face.

Correa had glassy bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emitting from his breath and person

It was determined that Correa violently struck the victim repeatedly in the face.

Charging documents also state Correa is allegedly from Puerto Rico, and has a United States passport, however it appears the pass port could be a fraudulent. Correa had no other type of foreign visa or identification cards and has no family in the area and is a flight risk considering the circumstances of this crime.

Correa was arrested, transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown and charged with First- and Second-Degree Assault

    So they say he is probably here illegally and is a flight risk. I wouldn’t put it past our incompetent judges to release him on bond or ROR. If he is here illegally he needs to do his time (on the taxpayers of course), then on the day of his release he needs to be immediately deported (also at the expense of the taxpayers). Lastly I hope they look into his records. If he was here illegally making money and not paying taxes they need to charge him with tax evasion too and charge the companies or individuals who hired him.

    Puerto Rico is a territory of the United States. It became a U.S. territory in 1898, when it was acquired from Spain after the Spanish-American War. With approximately 3.5 million residents, Puerto Rico is the most highly populated of all United States territories.

    sounds like someone owed somebody some money for some drugs

      Victim could have owed the suspect money for rent rent. Could be drunken POS who did like what victim said or something the victim did. Could have been a bullying situation. Could have been a POS who wanted the victim’s money so he could buy more alcohol or go buy drugs for himself. The list of assumptions about what happened could go on and on and on so WHY just assume it was the victim who owed the suspect money for drugs that were given to them?

    “Jose X Quinones Correa” Alias spic-n-span.

    Another illegal dreamer taking advantage of our wonderful welcoming country’s benefits.

    Maybe his family won the immigration lottery. In either case, put this animal down.

      PR is a U.S. territory, therefore, he wasn’t here illegally. If I’m wrong someone please correct me.

        You are not wrong. It is a U.S. territory

        • Powder on June 14, 2018 at 9:39 am

          It is a territory. Serious question though. If you are here in the USA from a US territory visiting or living here for more than XX amount of days (not sure what the timeframe is), don’t you still have to go through the proper steps to get a valid Visa to be here for an extended period of time? If his passport is a fraud and a Visa is needed, then he would be here illegally IF he met the requirements necessary to have to have a visa right?

          • Why are people dumb on June 14, 2018 at 8:29 pm

            You don’t need a visa or passport to travel to and from PR. The question is if he truly if from PR and not some foreign country. Hence the question of forgery.

    Puerto Ricans are American citizens! The issue is the passport and the fact that he committed a very serious crime. Now the real problem, the liberal St. Mary’s county Judges will not prosecute to fullest extent of the law. He will be walking Great Mills Road, Drunk, on his way to Cadillac Jack’s. He will get into another fight and go back to jail for a few days. Rinse and repeat for the rest of his days.

    I noted that the passport may be fraudulent…possibly meaning he isnt Puerto Rican and may be illegal from somewhere else. Things must be sorted out properly, if he is a US Citizen then he has rights to be incarcerated in the US, if he is not then he needs to be humanely ejected from the US

      You don’t have to be a US citizen to be incarcerated for a crime you commuted here. You would still serve your sentence THAN be sent back.

      The SoMD folks can’t wait for you to leave as well.

      Tell your mommy to hurry up and finish her GED!

      Then she can get a used Yugo for you all to leave in.
