Rockville fatal stabbing suspect arrested

Montgomery County police announced they have arrested a suspect in the multiple stabbings that occurred last night on Hungerford Drive in Rockville. Two adult males were allegedly stabbed by the suspect, and one of them was pronounced dead. Scorpio Alexander Standfield, 31, of no fixed address, has been charged with attempted murder, first-degree assault and first-degree murder. His bond status has not been divulged by police.

The incident began when Rockville City and Montgomery County police, and Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service units, responded to a report of a stabbing in the 700 block of Hungerford Drive at 9:55 PM Saturday. Responders found an adult male suffering from a stab wound. The victim provided a description of the assailant, and was then transported to a local hospital with serious injuries.

Officers identified the suspect as Standfield, whom they found in the 900 block of Hungerford. Standfield possessed evidence linking him to the crime, detectives said, without identifying if that included the weapon used. While investigating the scene on those two blocks, officers noticed a second adult male sitting in a vehicle in the 800 block of Hungerford, who was also suffering from a stab wound. That second male victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Detectives from the Major Crimes Division are asking anyone who has information about this stabbing and homicide to call the Major Crimes Division at 240-773-5070 or contact Crime Solvers of Montgomery County toll-free at 1-866-411-TIPS (8477). Callers can remain anonymous.   


  1. Great reporting, thank you.Now it's time to vote out the politicians in Montgomery County allowing these crimes to happen.

  2. Looks like this same suspect, Scorpio Stanfield, was arrested for killing his girlfriend's Jack Russell terrrier in July 2018 in a Germantown hotel room. Sounds like he has mental health issues going back for several years.

  3. This is a good sign.

  4. Our politicians and AG continue to release criminals on to our streets.
