SALISBURY, Md.- A Salisbury woman is facing attempted murder and related charges following accusations that she tried to run over another woman during a dispute over a man.
The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said that shortly before 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 15, deputies responded to a reported incident on Tuscola Avenue near the intersection with Seminole Boulevard. According to police, the deputies learned that 26-year-old Victoria R. Pitts-Maddox allegedly tried to run over a female pedestrian on Tuscola Avenue. Police said when that attempt failed, Pitts-Maddox then allegedly jumped from the vehicle while screaming that she was going to kill victim. Authorities said the pedestrian took steps to protect herself, and then contacted the Sheriff's Office.
Police said the deputies found out this incident stemmed from an ongoing problem between Pitts-Maddox and the victim over a man. Investigators said the problem had gotten to the point where a warrant against Pitts-Maddox had been obtained on Tuesday, Sept. 11, as the result of an incident where Pitts-Maddox went to the same victim's home and began breaking windows in her house while threatening to kill her. Deputies said that until the Sept. 15 incident, they had been unable to locate Pitts-Maddox.
As a result of their investigation, deputies took Pitts-Maddox into custody for the Sept. 15 incident, as well as for the Sept. 11 incident.
For the Sept. 15 incident, Pitts-Maddox was charged with attempted murder and first-degree assault and ordered held without bond. For the Sept. 11 incident, she was charged with malicious destruction of property and ordered held on a $35,000 bond.
