County police charged two men with assault after a Glen Burnie man was attacked Saturday evening at an intersection a block from his home.

According to the police report, George Sine, 43, was leaving Arundel Seafood on Mountain Road at 7:50 p.m. when he noticed two men in another car following him.

Mr. Sine told police that the other car nearly hit him at the intersection of Aquahart Road and Crain Highway and he began arguing with the driver. The argument escalated into a fight and the other driver attacked Mr. Sine with a box cutter and his companion hit Mr. Sine with a tire iron, police said.

The men drove off and Mr. Sine drove to his home on Aquahart Road and called police. Witnesses provided the license plate number of the assailants' car and officers picked up the men a short time later, police said.

Sidney Miles Purnell, 23, of the 2800 block of Needlewood Lane, Bowie, was charged with assault with intent to maim and battery, and Charles Ronnie Brown, 20, of the 7500 block of Vineyard Lane, Crofton, was charged with assault and battery. Mr. Sine was treated at North Arundel Hospital and released.
