On November 21 at 5:53 a.m., officers responded to the 9500 block of Crain Highway in La Plata for the report of an assault in progress. When officers arrived, they found the victim with severe injuries. He was transported to a hospital where he was treated. The suspect had already fled. A preliminary investigation revealed the suspect walked into a building and started punching the victim multiple times. During the assault, the suspect repeatedly said he was going to kill the victim. The suspect fled the scene in a car. Officers were able to identify the suspect as Ezra Charles Calloway, 41, of Suitland. A warrant is on file charging Calloway with attempted second-degree murder and first-degree assault. Calloway is 6’1” and weighs about 240 pounds. He may be driving a light gray or silver-colored Dodge Journey with Maryland registration 3EV6828.
