Police arrested a Westminster man Saturday and charged him with stabbing a woman with a 10-inch-long screwdriver.

Larry Allen Williams of South Court Street was charged in Carroll County Circuit Court over the weekend with assault and battery, malicious destruction and assault with a deadly weapon, the screwdriver.

Maryland State Police Lt. Dean Brewer said Mr. Williams was one of about 50 people involved in a fight near South Court Street at Center Alley about 11 p.m. Saturday.

The woman, identified in Circuit Court documents as Cheryl Gibson, told police that when she tried to stop a confrontation between her cousin and Mr. Williams, she was stabbed in the shoulder.

Ms. Gibson suffered a small laceration but was not hospitalized, according to a police report of the incident.

The malicious destruction charge was filed, court documents indicate, because the stabbing allegedly destroyed Ms. Gibson's shirt.

Mr. Williams posted a $5,000 bond and was released Sunday, according to the court documents.
