WBAL reports Ocean City police are reporting that four people were assaulted around 12:35 a.m. Friday morning, three of which were flown to local area hospitals as a result.

The assault took place on 130th Street and is believed to be drug-related, according to Ocean City Mayor Richard  Meehan. 

"We believe it is drug-related, we’re not really sure at this point," Meehan told C4 and Bryan Nehman Friday morning. "We’ll have more information on that as it comes out. Unfortunately, we see more and more of these things throughout the country and everywhere. It’s isolated here in Ocean City. It doesn’t happen often but, unfortunately, it does happen."

The news release revealed that during an investigation, "it was determined that the suspects and victims engaged in a physical altercation while attending a house party in the area."

Two people have been arrested in the assault case. Stas Urbanski-Hughes, 18, and Brandon Storm Allen Messick, 18, have been charged with first-degree assault (4 counts), second-degree assault (4 counts), reckless endangerment (4 counts), and openly wear and carry a dangerous weapon (1 count)
