On Aug. 12, 2018, DFC Gerard Muschette responded to the 47000 block of Devin Circle in Lexington Park for the report of an assault. The victim advised that Markell Anthony Robinson, 41, of Lexington Park became angry for not having sexual intercourse with him.

Robinson accused the victim of infidelity and used his hands to strangle the victim on the bed. The victim stated that Robinson then grabbed a shotgun, racked the slide, pointed the shotgun at the victim and stated he should kill the victim.

The victim attempted to flee the residence but was cornered at the bottom of the steps and was struck multiple times in the face, causing the nose to bleed. The victim was able to escape to a neighbor’s house. Muschette observed the victim’s face was bloody with swelling to the lip. Muschette located the shotgun in the bedroom where the assault occurred.

Robinson was transported to the St. Mary’s County Detention and Rehabilitation Center in Leonardtown and charged with First-Degree Assault and Second-Degree Assault. CASE# 42436-18
