County police arrested a Glen Burnie man Tuesday on charges of threatening a neighbor with a knife in the laundry room of their apartment building during a dispute about using the dryer.
Carl Gordon Schultz, 32, of the 7800 block of Park West Drive was charged with first- and second-degree assault and illegal possession of a deadly weapon.
Police said Enethia L. Rollins, 27, of the Park West Drive address, and her roommate, Rufus Hudson, 34, got into an argument with a man who removed their clothes from a dryer while they were still wet shortly before 8 p.m.
When Rollins tried to put the clothes back in the dryer, the man cursed her, told her she could not use the dryer, drew a 13-inch knife and and waved it in her face, police said.
After Rollins and Hudson called police, Officer William T. McNemar went to the laundry room and found a man leaning against a washing machine and drinking a beer, police said.
On top of the washing machine was a large sheathed knife, police said.

A gunman robbed a Boston Market restaurant in Glen Burnie early yesterday and locked the manager in a freezer, county police said.
A man armed with a silver gun approached the unidentified manager as he was opening the store in the 7900 block of Ritchie Highway about 6 a.m., police said.
The gunman ordered the manager to empty a safe and then locked him in a freezer, police said.
Police do not have a detailed description of the gunman.
Block Watch group elects four new directors
As part of its reorganization effort, members of the Glen Burnie Block Watch of Glen Gardens have elected four new directors during a special election.
They are: Mark Goodfellow, Sheree Srock, Stephen Srock and Sheree Fox.
They will serve until the block watch's annual meeting in November when a regularly scheduled election will be held.
Next week, the board of directors is scheduled to meet to elect new officers.
After Ida Hilditch resigned as president in September, board members and officers quarreled and resigned.
Members blamed the block watch problems on misunderstandings, hard feelings and personality conflicts.
