An Edgewood man has been accused of charging at his girlfriend with a pitchfork and seriously assaulting her, according to charging documents.

Carlo Jackson, 23, of the 1700 block of Judy Way, was arrested after his live-in girlfriend told police that she went to her sister's home Wednesday after a heated argument with Jackson, according to documents.

Jackson ran to the door with a pitchfork in his hand and allegedly "was attempting to stab her through the door," according to the documents.

Jackson also allegedly hit her several times with his fist, grabbed her by the hair and threw items at her, including a dirty diaper, a vacuum cleaner, water and Kool-Aid, according to the documents.

The victim had a small cut on her thigh, according to the document.

The victim, however, told Harford County District Court Judge Dave Carey during a bail review Wednesday that Jackson's incarceration would be a hardship to their family.

Carey acknowledged her financial concerns, but said: "My concerns are physical."

He agreed to reduce Jackson's bail to $100,000, which he posted Thursday and was released from the Harford County Detention Center.
