On Aug. 31 at 3:35 p.m., Charles County Sheriff's officers responded to Food Lion at 191 St. Patricks Drive for a report of an abduction. Shortly thereafter, the Sheriff's Office received a report of a fight with a knife a residence in the 5300 block of Halibut Place in Waldorf. Officers at the first call determined the two calls were related. Officers arrived at the fight and determined the abduction was unfounded and two subjects who were involved in the fight were having an argument.
Investigation revealed Monica Shartese Haws, 25, of Waldorf assaulted a 25-year-old Waldorf man with a knife but was disarmed prior to officers' arrival. Haws was charged with second degree assault, reckless endangerment, carrying a deadly weapon with intent to injure and disorderly conduct. She is being held at the Charles County Detention Center pending an appearance before the District Court Commissioner. Officer R. Kimble investigated.
