Arnold man accused of assaulting woman in domestic dispute

An Arnold man is accused of assaulting a woman in a domestic dispute in Pasadena early Wednesday.

Anne Arundel County police officers arrived at the home in the unit block of Nicholson Drive at about 12:45 a.m. to find a man in the driveway with a stab wound in the hip and a woman inside the home with a laceration to the hand, Lt. T.J. Smith said.

Jon Robert Letcher Jr., 29, of the unit block of East Joyce Lane in Arnold, was charged with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and deadly weapon with intent to injure.

Smith said Letcher and the woman were arguing when he attempted to stab her with a kitchen knife. During the struggle, Smith said, Letcher was stabbed.

Letcher was taken to University of Maryland Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries and then released to police custody, Smith said.

The woman was treated on the scene by Anne Arundel County Fire Department personnel.
