Vaugh Holton, of the 1600 block of Annapolis Road, was charged with two counts of assault.

When Stackewicz got into the kitchen, the report says, Holton charged toward the officer and refused to drop the knife.
"The suspect . . . advised me he would injure me as well," Stackewicz wrote in the report, adding that the man then turned toward his brother and raised his right hand and the knife.
"As the suspect raised his arm, I attempted to execute deadly force by striking the suspect on the head (with a nightstick)," the report says.
The report says the man was not injured, although he did request treatment after arriving at the police station.
WOMAN SAYS SHE WAS BILKED OF $23,000
An 80-year-old Gambrills woman has told police that two of her son's friends bilked her out of more than $23,000 by intimidating her and saying they had protected her son while he was in prison.
No arrests have been made in the case.
"She advised that she did not realize what was happening when (the men) had her writing checks and making withdrawals from her savings account," the report says.
The reports say that one of the men had shared a cell with the woman's son. "(The son) apparently trusted (the man) and sent him to help his mother, who walks with a cane and has a hard time doing things around the house," the report says.
The woman told police that she gave the men checks for thousands of dollars. "On April 29, (the men) got (the woman) intoxicated on vodka and drove her to Ocean City where the men bought her a ring and a watch," the report says. "(The victim's daughter) advised that they looked like they came from a Cracker Jack box, but the victim was very pleased with them."
The reports says the woman then gave the men an additional $10,000.
