Two women, including a Baltimore County Fire Department paramedic, have been charged with first- and second-degree assault following a domestic argument.

The paramedic, Shakia Tolson, 35, of the 7900 block of Crisford Place, 21208, has been suspended without pay from the Fire Department as a result of this incident. She is assigned to Woodlawn Station #3.

On May 16 at 6:12 p.m., police responded to an apartment in the 7900 block of Crisford Place 21208 for a report of an assault. Officers were met by Keha Hayes-Mason, 40. Hayes-Mason told police that she had been having an argument with her ex-girlfriend, Tolson, about leaving the apartment. During the argument, Tolson began striking her with her fists and pulled a knife out of her pocket.

Hayes-Mason stated that she was scared so she went to the kitchen to get a knife. She exchanged punches with Tolson and at some point cut herself with the knife she was carrying. Tolson later ran from the apartment.

While police were still at the apartment, Tolson came back. She told police that she had asked Hayes-Mason to leave the apartment. Tolson said Hayes-Mason began "throwing closed fist punches" at her and threatened her with a knife.

Hayes-Mason and Tolson were taken into custody. Both women sustained superficial injuries and declined medical treatment.

Tolson and Hayes-Mason each were released on $10,000 bail.

Web tip:

On October 18 at 1:57 a.m., Baltimore County Police responded to the intersection of Pennsylvania Avenue and York Road for a report of an assault that just occurred. Officers looked for the complainants of the call but could not find anyone.

At 2:08 a.m., a person approached an officer and advised that there were two people yelling at Pennsylvania Avenue and Jefferson Street. Officers responded to that intersection where the victims were located.

Both of the victims (an adult male and adult female) were noticed to be highly intoxicated and became belligerent with police.

The male later told police that a silver Mazda pulled up to him. He said something to the driver and the vehicle drove off. The Mazda later returned and approximately six suspects got out. The suspects held a knife to his throat and assaulted the female. The suspects took her purse and cell phone before leaving in the Mazda.

The victims only suffered minor injuries and were not transported to a medical facility for treatment.

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call police at 410-307-2020.
