A Westminster woman is being held without bail after she allegedly stabbed a man.
Kelsey Anne Fick, 23, of the 200 block of Bezold Avenue, was arrested Wednesday and charged with one count of first-degree assault, two counts of second-degree assault and one count of reckless endangerment. She was held without bail following a Thursday bail review, according to electronic court records.
A Carroll County Sheriff's Office deputy responded to a Westminster residence Wednesday morning after receiving a report of a stabbing. When the deputy arrived, she was met by a man, who was holding a blood-soaked towel to his left shoulder, and his wife. Fick was inside the residence, with a neighbor holding her in a sitting position, according to the statement of probable cause.
The man told the deputy that he was sitting in the kitchen while his wife made breakfast. Fick had gone outside to smoke, and when she returned, she pushed his wife out of her way and grabbed a 12-inch butcher knife. Fick raised the knife and came at the man, according to the statement.
The man told the deputy that he attempted to get Fick to drop the knife, and when he tried to disarm her, she stabbed him in the shoulder. At the time, the neighbor entered the kitchen with pepper spray and told Fick to drop the knife. She complied, according to the statement.
The man said he grabbed the knife Fick dropped, rinsed it off and returned it to the drawer. The deputy was able to find the knife in the drawer and noted there was a blood splatter where the blade met the handle, according to the statement.
The neighbor told the deputy that he was in his house when the man's wife came into his house and said Fick had a knife. He was able to get Fick to drop the knife after demanding she do it multiple times, and once she dropped to the ground, he kept her on the floor until the deputy could arrive, according to the statement.
Fick is scheduled to appear in court on July 26.
