From the Harford County Sheriff’s Office:
On 12/4 at 1:49 a.m. deputies responded to the 800 block of Windstream Way for a reported assault.
Upon arrival, deputies made contact with the 35-year-old female victim who advised she was assaulted by a black male wearing a brown jacket.
Through investigation it was determined the victim was in her home when she heard a noise coming from her living room. When she entered that room, she saw the male suspect. He demanded money and assaulted the victim with a hammer and vacuum from inside the home, in what we believe was an effort to knock her down while he rummaged through her belongings.
The suspect fled the scene and the victim was able to call 911. At this time, it appears the suspect did not taken anything. Investigation by Harford County Sheriff’s Office deputies quickly identified a suspect who was successfully taken into custody and charged. (David Dorsey, 11/1957, Edgewood)
The victim was taken to Johns Hopkins Bayview, where she has been medically released.
