Near collision with car sparks assault on driver

September 20, 1994

A Severn woman told Western District officers she was assaulted early Saturday by a man and a woman at the intersection of Reece Road and Pioneer Drive, county police said.

Zanina Taylor, 24, said she was driving her 1994 Mazda west on Route 175 shortly after 2 a.m. when a man driving a teal green Grand Am swerved into her lane and almost hit her car, police said. She turned onto Reece Road and both cars pulled over at the intersection with Pioneer Drive, police said.

Ms. Taylor and the man both got out of their cars and argued. They exchanged punches after their argument escalated, police said. A woman who drove up in another car got out and tried to hit Ms. Taylor with a tire iron.

Ms. Taylor retreated to her car and drove away, police said.

Ms. Taylor had just come from the NCO club on Fort Meade and told police her male assailant may also patronize the club. The victim lost her eyeglasses in the melee and believes one of the suspects may have picked them up, police said.
