An Edgewood man was charged with first-degree assault after allegedly pulling a knife on his girlfriend.
Dominic Shawn McDaniel, 21, of the 1800 block of Edgewater Drive, was charged Aug. 23 with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, theft less than $100 and having a dangerous weapon with intent to injure.
Harford County Sheriff's deputies responded to a residence in the 1900 block of Edgewater Drive last week to meet with a woman who said she got into an argument with her boyfriend, McDaniel, who wanted her to move in with him, according to charging documents.
After the argument, he left her residence, but they met later in the parking lot, where the woman said McDaniel allegedly took her cell phone and clothes. The woman said she asked for it back and hit McDaniel in the face, according to the charging documents.
McDaniel then got out of the car, allegedly hit her in the face twice, wrapped a T-shirt around her neck and allegedly started choking her, according to charging documents.
When he let go, the woman walked away, but McDaniel followed and allegedly tried to run her over in his Ford truck before getting out of the vehicle, pulling out a pocket knife and allegedly chasing her, according to charging documents.
McDaniel was then restrained by his friends and left the scene in his truck. Responding deputies checked the area and were not able to find him and charges were filed through the commissioner, according to charging documents.
As of Thursday morning, McDaniel had been released from the Harford County Detention Center on $5,000 bond.Copyright © 2014, The Baltimore Sun
