The Enterprise - - News -

Nicky Richard Ni­cholas, 23, of Great Mills was re­leased Tues­day from St. Mary’s jail on a $10,000 un­se­cured bond fol­low­ing his ar­rest on a charge of com­mit­ting a sec­ond-de­gree as­sault the day be­fore on a girl­friend at their res­i­dence.

Law of­fi­cers re­spond­ing Mon­day to the Rose Lane ad­dress were told by the girl­friend that she had been punched in the head and “blacked out” for a short time, be­fore she grabbed a knife that sub­se­quently was taken from her dur­ing a strug­gle, ac­cord­ing to a state­ment of prob­a­ble cause filed by St. Mary’s sher­iff’s Cpl. El­iz­a­beth O’Con­nor.

The girl­friend was taken to MedS­tar St. Mary’s Hospi­tal, the court pa­pers state, where an emer­gency room “physi­cian ad­vised [an] in­jury to the vic­tim’s hand was con­sis­tent with some­one pulling a knife away from some­one, ver­sus a stab wound.”

Ni­cholas also was charged this week with com­mit­ting a sec­ond-de­gree as­sault on the girl­friend on Oct. 10, in the court pa­pers in­clud­ing her ac­count that a cig­a­rette was thrown at her be­fore she flicked it out of her hair and it landed on a bed, where she was pinned down dur­ing a strug­gle and suf­fered a burn on her back.

Dur­ing po­lice ques­tion­ing, court pa­pers state, the sus­pect said he took the knife from the girl­friend be­cause he was con­cerned that she was go­ing to harm her­self.
