A 25-year-old Middle River man was charged with attempted murder after his girlfriend's boss was stabbed repeatedly as he walked her to her car in Severn early yesterday, Anne Arundel County police said.

Officers responded about 6 a.m. to the 2100 block of Piney Branch Circle in the Arundel Preserve community in Hanover, where a man had been walking a female employee from his townhouse to her car when he was struck with a crowbar and stabbed several times, police said.

The assailant ran to a vehicle and fled.

The woman gave police a suspect's name, and Baltimore County police responded to his home in Middle River, where he was taken into custody without incident, police said.

Jonathan Marshall Sr. of the 600 block of Sopwith Drive was charged with first-degree attempted murder, first-degree assault, reckless endangerment and related offenses.

The victim, Kenneth Flanagan, was taken to a hospital, where he was listed in serious condition yesterday afternoon.
