An Edgewood man who allegedly barged into his girlfriend’s home in Towson and used a sword in an attack on the woman’s husband turned himself in to police last week, Baltimore County Police said.

According to a police report, David Edward Bryant, aka Bubba, of the 100 block of Palmetto Drive in Edgewood, went to the girlfriend’s apartment to continue an argument at around 9:15 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19.

When he arrived at her home in the 200 block of Linden Terrace in Towson, police said Bryant found the woman’s husband there. According to the report, Bryant, 38, forced his way into the apartment and allegedly beat the husband.

During the fight, police said Bryant used a sword on display at the apartment to attempt to stab and cut the husband. The husband, 30, was taken to St. Joseph and treated for minor injuries, police said.

Bryant fled the area, police said, and a warrant was issued for his arrest.

Cpl. Cathy Batton, a police spokeswoman, said a warrant was served on Friday, Jan. 25, and Bryant turned himself in at the Essex police station.

Bryant was charged with first-degree assault, first-degree burglary, and destruction of property, and is being held on $150,000 bail, Batton said.
