Glen Burnie man arrested after knife fight at shopping center ATM

A Glen Burnie man was charged with attempted homicide and assault after police said he stabbed and slashed a man with a knife during an altercation at an automatic teller machine Saturday at Glen Burnie Town Center.

Anne Arundel County Police said they arrested Timothy John Garrity, 62, of Glen Burnie.

Police were called to the Crain Highway shopping center at 1:27 a.m. after witnesses saw two men and a woman fighting at the M&T; Bank ATM. Officers found a man bleeding from his hand who said a man and woman tried to rob him.

Officers then received a call from a stabbing victim at Baltimore Washington Medical Center, who said he and a woman had been at the ATM when a man approached and began slashing at him with a knife, police said. The victim fought back with his own knife, police said, wounding the suspect. The victim suffered injuries to his arm, neck and torso.

Police said the attacker's description matched that of the man police found outside the bank, and Garrity was charged with attempted second-degree homicide, first- and second-degree assault and other charges.
