According to the sheriff’s office, Moreau and Tingler — her boyfriend — got into a domestic related altercation, and she stabbed him in the midsection before fleeing. Tingler was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center. After attempting to refuse treatment, he checked himself out of the hospital.

Moreau was arrested Tuesday without incident, the office stated, and is being held at the Harford County Detention Center awaiting an initial appearance before a district court commissioner.

No further details were being released Tuesday, and the sheriff’s office said the investigation is active and ongoing.
