Woman cut by knife trying to stop fight

A 33-year-old woman who tried to break up an apparent fight between a man and woman at a Glen Burnie bar Thursday night was cut on her leg during the altercation, county police said.

Hope Marie Sears, 33, of the 100 block of Georgia Ave N.E., was treated for a minor cut on her lower left leg at North Arundel Hospital, police said.

A police report on the incident said Ms. Sears was in the Cross Roads Tavern, in the 7300 block of Ritchie Highway, when she saw a man hitting a woman shortly before 10:30 p.m.

The woman approached the couple and told the man to stop hitting his companion, police said, and the man became angry, told her it was none of her business and cut her across the leg with a knife.

The suspect and the woman drove off in a dark-colored Ford Bronco.

As of Friday, police had made no arrests.
