A Waldorf woman has been charged with first-degree assault after allegedly threatening two other women with a box cutter during a Feb. 2 altercation in the Carrington neighborhood.

One of the victims told police she had driven to the community to drop off a bag for a relative. When she arrived, Teiasha Janae Johnson, 19, got into the back seat of the car and the two got into a verbal argument, according to charging papers.

Johnson began smacking the woman in the back of her head, at which point her front-seat passenger got out of the car and pulled Johnson out of the rear seat, the papers state.

As the passenger got back into the car, Johnson opened the driver’s door and tried to take the keys out of the ignition. She smacked the driver in the face, knocking her glasses off, and put a box cutter to her throat, the documents state.

The passenger told police she got out of the car a second time to push Johnson away from the driver, at which point Johnson pointed the box cutter at her and asked, “Do you want to get stabbed, too?” the papers state.

The passenger was able to jump in the backseat so she and the driver could get away, but not before Johnson slashed her driver-side rear tire with the box cutter, the records state.

Johnson was charged Feb. 13 with two counts of first- and second-degree assault, two counts of reckless endangerment, two counts of carrying a dangerous weapon with intent to injure, concealing a dangerous weapon and malicious destruction of property valued at less than $500.

She was released Feb. 15 on $20,000 bond, according to online court records.
