On June 12 at 1:52 p.m., Charles County Sheriffs officers responded to Ashford Circle in Waldorf for a report of a vehicle driving through yards. While officers were en route, the same vehicle, driven by a female suspect, was reported to have hit two unoccupied parked vehicles, including a Sheriffs Office cruiser, and then fled on foot. She went into a garage and stole a portable phone which she later threw into another residences yard. The suspect then approached a woman waiting in a van at a bus stop. The suspect asked the woman for a ride and when the woman declined, the suspect pulled the woman's hair.
The suspect then walked into a house. A young child inside the house alerted his father that there was a stranger in the home. The father escorted the woman onto the porch and waited until police arrived at which time they placed her under arrest.
As an officer attempted to place the suspect in a cruiser, she assaulted the officer, causing minor injuries to his ribs. She was transported to the Charles County Detention Center. The officer was treated at the Civista Medical Center. Officer D. Snyder investigated.
The suspect was later identified as Arlisa Monice Carter, 26, of Washington, D. C. She was charged with two counts of assault, burglary, theft and numerous traffic violations. While she was being processed at the detention center, Carter assaulted an inmate who was also in the holding cell and tore the inmates shirt. Det. K. Keelan investigated the assault and charged Carter with assault, theft and robbery.
Later, while awaiting a bond review in the court holding facility, Carter became disorderly and failed to obey the orders of correctional officers. She was then charged with disorderly conduct and disobeying a verbal order.
Carter remains incarcerated at the Charles County Detention Center on two $10,000 bonds and a $50,000 bond.
