An Edgewood woman has been charged with first- and second-degree assault following a knife fight between several women Thursday.
Danielle Kirksey, 25, is being held in the Harford County Detention Center on $250,000 bond.
The Harford County Sheriff’s Office said the fight occurred in the 500 block of Candlewood Drive in Edgewood shortly after 6 p.m. Deputies said several women were involved in an ongoing dispute when Kirksey pulled a knife and began swinging it, injuring several people.
Tyirra Smith, 24, of the 500 block of Candlewood Drive, suffered a laceration to her forehead and was treated at the scene by paramedics from the Joppa Magnolia Volunteer Fire Company and transported to University of Maryland Shock Trauma. Her injury was not considered to be life threatening.
Samirah Easter, 28, of the 900 block of Topview Drive, and April Anderson, 42, of Candlewood Drive, were taken to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center with minor injuries.
Two additional female suspects, tentatively identified as being involved in the fight, were taken to the Harford County Sheriff’s Office’s Southern Precinct for questioning. They were later released, and charges against them are pending further investigation.
