A woman arrested in connection to a non-fatal stabbing Tuesday in Edgewood, has been released from jail following a bail review hearing Thursday.

Taskekia McCall, 36, is charged with first- and second-degree assault and obstructing and hindering in connection to the incident. She was being held at the Harford County Detention Center without bail, but was released on her own recognizance after a hearing in Harford County District Court Thursday afternoon, according to electronic court records.

On Tuesday, deputies from the Harford County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 1600 block of Swallow Crest Drive at about 7:19 p.m. for the report of a laceration, the office reported. There, deputies saw blood in the hallway of an apartment and found Shanetta Wright, 32, of Thomasville, North Carolina, with “obvious trauma to her arms and legs” when she exited one of the apartments.

Wright was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center for treatment of her injuries, which were not believed to be life-threatening, the office reported.

While outside the apartment, deputies heard another female who sounded “as though she was in distress,” and entered another apartment to find McCall. She was uninjured and taken into custody, the office reported.

Initial investigation suggests that the two were in an altercation, the office reported, when McCall stabbed Wright. The two women knew each other, police said.

The sheriff’s office originally reported that McCall was also from North Carolina, but updated court records indicate she was living in the 1600 block of Swallow Crest Drive in Edgewood, where the incident occurred.

Court records did not list an attorney for McCall.

The investigation is ongoing. The sheriff’s office asked anyone with information about the incident to contact Detective Aksomitus at 410-638-3183.
