Police arrest Annapolis woman in attack on man

September 11, 1996|By TaNoah Morgan | TaNoah Morgan,SUN STAFF

An Annapolis woman was arrested yesterday after she allegedly chased her live-in boyfriend around their neighborhood with a metal pole, then went after him with a knife, cutting his left arm, county police said.

Sauntay Rosalie Milton, 23, of the 1800 block of Labrott Lane was charged with attempted murder, assault with a deadly weapon, assault with intent to murder and assault and battery. She was being held at the Southern District police station.

Kevin Arnold Austin, 30, of the same address was being treated at Anne Arundel Medical Center.

Police said a woman arrived at the Labrott Lane address before 11: 30 a.m. irate because her boyfriend wouldn't pick her up from her cousin's home in Annapolis.

The man, who told police he had been threatened by the woman before, refused to let her inside the house.

The woman then picked up a 2-foot metal pole and started toward the man's 1996 Isuzu Rodeo, police said.

When he ran outside to stop her, the woman turned on him and chased him around neighbors' yards and back to the house, where he got inside and locked the doors, police said.

Police said the man ran to an upstairs bedroom and called police, while the 100-pound woman kicked the door until the frame gave way.

She grabbed a butcher knife from the kitchen and ran upstairs, where she pulled the telephone from the wall and slashed the man across the left arm with the knife, police said.

The man pushed the woman away and ran to a neighbor's house, where the neighbor called police and an ambulance.

The woman drove off in the man's truck, police said. She returned about a half hour later and police arrested her.
