Maryland Coach Stabbed At His Home

Thomas S. Wootton’s junior varsity basketball coach Stephon Seraile is recovering after being stabbed at his home, according to his family.

“It’s just an uphill battle, his mother Deborah Seraile said. He’s got a lot of stitches. It’s just an uphill battle.”

Montgomery County police said a 31-year old man from Germantown was stabbed outside his house around 1 a.m. Nov. 13, police spokeswoman Angela Cruz said.

Police could not release the man’s name. The 911 call came from the address that Deborah Seraile lives at, according to police and tax records.

The incident began when the man’s brother, 19, got into an argument and physical fight with a group of at least three individuals outside the house, Cruz said. The brother knew some of the individuals in the group.

The man’s parents asked the group to leave and they would not, Cruz said. The man approached the group and one of them cut him with a knife. He was taken to a hospital, where he was treated for four days, Deborah Seraile said.

When police responded to the residence at 1:10 a.m., one suspect was on the scene and another was found nearby, Cruz said.

At least two suspects were taken to a police station for questioning, Cruz said. No arrests have been made.

A call to Thomas S. Wootton High School was not immediately returned Friday.

Wootton’s varsity basketball coach Chris Bohlen gave his best wishes.

“He’s one of the best guys you could ever meet. Everything you read about happening in the paper, you never think it could happen to somebody you care about, Bohlen said.

Friends and basketball players have been coming to the house to visit and have been cooking the family meals every day, Deborah Seraile said. She would not speak about the details of the incident, but praised the response from the community.

I am actually very, very proud he is extremely loved, Deborah Seraile said.
