A Waldorf woman is in custody after allegedly trying to kill a relative during a fight Monday morning, according to police.

Officers were called to the home that 25-year-old Daniela Roxanna Rankin shares with the relative shortly before 6 a.m., according to charging documents. In the 911 call, records state, the woman said Rankin was attacking her.

When officers arrived they allegedly saw Rankin with two knives in her hands. They found, according to the report, that she’d stabbed the victim several times in the head and arms. She and Rankin were arguing over where Rankin was going with her child and, in the course of such, Rankin had punched her in the face, according to the victim. Following that, Rankin allegedly proclaimed “[Expletive], you’re going to die,” and went to the kitchen to grab the knives.

Rankin allegedly stabbed the victim and then went upstairs to retrieve her child, who had fled, according to the report. The victim had managed to confine Rankin to a single room by the time officers arrived. Rankin has a history of schizophrenia and violent tendencies, according to the police report.

Rankin was being held at the Charles County jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

The child was not injured during the course of the altercation.
