Man injured, woman charged with attempted murder after Severn stabbing

A Severn woman was arrested after a 28-year-old was found lying in a pool of his blood on the woman’s front porch early Sunday morning, according to Anne Arundel County Police.

Police identified Shatoyia Carlease Taylor, 35, in charging papers as a “known associate” of the man, who had suffered a punctured left lung and was listed in serious but stable condition Sunday.


Taylor was arrested Sunday and charged with attempted first- and second-degree murder along with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and drug possession misdemeanors.

When police responded to her Severn address at about 4:15 a.m. Sunday for a reported stabbing, the semi-conscious man told officers that he was involved in a street robbery and did not want to speak further about the matter, a detective wrote in charging papers. He was transported to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.


Surveillance footage of the incident showed a man standing next to a vehicle identified as Taylor’s, arguing with somebody inside before a woman, identified as Taylor, chases after him, swinging an object and yelling at him.

Detectives later found Taylor at her home, wearing the same clothing as the woman pictured in the video. She declined to speak with officers.

At a court hearing Monday, Taylor was ordered to remain held without bail at the Jennifer Road Detention Center. She is being represented by the Office of the Public Defender.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Aug. 24.
