A Glen Burnie man faces attempted murder and assault charges for reportedly stabbing and slashing a man using an ATM at Glen Burnie Town Center.
Police were called to the center about 1:27 a.m. July 5 for a report that two men and a woman were fighting in front of the M&T Bank ATM. One man and the woman were seen leaving the area in a black truck.When officers arrived, they found a man bleeding from the hand. He told police he was using the ATM when a man and a woman approached him and tried to steal his ATM card. However, his account did not match those given by witnesses. Shortly after, a call was received from the Baltimore Washington Medical Center from a stabbing victim in the emergency room; that victim was taken to the hospital in a black truck driven by a woman.
Officers went to the hospital and spoke with a 57-year-old man and the driver of the truck. Police say the man was attempting to use the ATM when another man approached him, began shouting at him and slashing/stabbing him with a knife. The victim drew his own knife and attempted to fight back, wounding the suspect. The victim was able to get back into the truck and was driven to the hospital. He was transferred from BWMC to the University of MD-Shock Trauma for injuries to his arm, neck, and torso.
The assailant’s description matched that of the man officers talked to outside the bank, identified as Timothy John Garrity, 609 Mayo Road in Glen Burnie. Garrity was taken to BWMC by medics and treated for his injuries. He was charged with attempted second-degree homicide, first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and disorderly conduct.
