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.
