A Wal­dorf wo­man has been ar­rested and charged with at­tempted mur­der after al­legedly cut­ting an ex-boyfriend with a knife and smash­ing her car into a car driven by his girl­friend near Eva Turner Ele­men­tary School.

Ju­lia Jane Pike, 18, of Wal­dorf was ar­rested Tues­day and charged with at­tempted first- and sec­ond-de­gree mur­der and first- and sec­ond-de­gree as­sault, ac­cord­ing to on­line court records.

Ac­cord­ing to charg­ing doc­u­ments, Charles County Sher­iff’s Of­fice Pfc. D. Arends re­sponded to Eva Turner Tues­day around 1:30 p.m. for a re­port of a stab­bing and ve­hi­cle col­li­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to re­ports from the vic­tims and a wit­ness, Pike at­tacked the male vic­tim with a pocket knife, cut­ting his fin­gers and strik­ing him. Pike then at­tempted to run over him with her car, the vic­tim stated. One of the wit­nesses as­sisted the male vic­tim to a ve­hi­cle which trans­ported

him to a hospi­tal, where he was be­ing treated for his wounds when in­ter­viewed by of­fi­cer But­ler of the sher­iff’s of­fice.

Ac­cord­ing to the fe­male vic­tim, she drove away after wit­ness­ing the con­fronta­tion, but Pike pur­sued her and drove her 2015 Nis­san into the rear of the car the fe­male vic­tim was driv­ing.

Pike’s ve­hi­cle was later lo­cated by po­lice, where it was dis­cov­ered to have front end dam­age con­sis­tent with the fe­male vic­tim’s ac­count, ac­cord­ing to the charg­ing doc­u­ments.

Pike al­legedly told po­lice she cut the male vic­tim in self de­fense. Pike was taken into cus­tody by po­lice. As of press time, bond had not yet been set.
