One was a Frederick man charged with slashing a woman’s arm with a razor.
Frederick, Md (KM) A Frederick man is one of five people indicted on Friday by the Grand Jury. Lawrence William Starkey, 39, is charged with two counts of 2nd-degree assault, and one count of 1st-degree assault.
Starkey was arrested earlier this month for slashing a woman’s arm with a razor on the east side of Frederick. Police responded to the traffic circle on South East Street near Monocacy Boulevard, and found a woman lying in the grass. She told them Starkey attacked her with a straight razor as she lifted her arms to defend herself. She also said he punched her until she lost consciousness.
Starkey denied it, claiming the woman was intoxicated and may have fallen. Officers took him into custody.
The other indictments returned by the Grand Jury include:
* Luke Casey Maher, 22, of Poolesville,Md, whose charged with possession with intent to distribute more than 10 grams of marijuana; driving while impaired by drugs, or drugs and alcohol; driving while impaired by a controlled dangerous substance (drugs); and failure to control speed to avoid a collision for a incident which occurred on November 9th, 2018.
