Frederick Police department detectives arrest two subjects in an assault that occurred...

On 6/16/14, at approximately 0250 hours, Frederick Police officers were dispatched to FMH for a call about an injured person from a serious assault. Det. Doug Ames was assigned as the lead investigator and began follow up. The investigation revealed that at approximately 0200 hours a verbal altercation ensued between the victim and two suspects known to the victim while the group was in the 300 block of N. Market St. A short time later, the victim was accosted by the two suspects in Scottish Alley near his home.

Both suspects began assaulting the victim and struck him with a brick. Additionally, the victim told police that one of the suspects, Gladchuk, stabbed his arm with a knife. The victim was able to escape from the suspects and was taken to FMH by a family member. His injuries were described as serious but non-life threatening. The suspects and victim in this case are known to each other; therefore, this is not a random event.

The suspects were identified as:

James Chester Gladchuk
(W/M, 10-13-90)
700 Block Midway Dr.
Frederick, MD 21701

Michael Anthony Voorhis
(W/M, 4-25-89)
200 Block Sheffield Ct
Walkersville, MD 21793

Both suspects were charged on warrants with:

• Assault 1st degree
• Assault 2nd degree
• Reckless Endangerment

Both suspects turned themselves into the Frederick Police shortly after being notified of the outstanding warrants. Both suspects were taken to FCADC without incident.

Follow up continues in this case related to incident, and the case remains active and ongoing. Anyone with information related to this case is asked to contact the lead detective, Det. Doug Ames at 301-600-1253. Anonymous information can be relayed by contacting 301-600-TIPS.
