SALISBURY, Md. - The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says deputies arrested a Salisbury woman on Tuesday after she stabbed a man in the chest.

Deputies say they responded to a reported stabbing in the 1000 block of Nokomis Avenue around 5:15 p.m. Tuesday. Upon arrival, deputies say it was discovered that the resident, 29-year-old Amanda Holbrook, was sitting in her living room armed with a knife when she stabbed a man in the chest as he entered the room. Police say she had been specifically waiting for the man, who was an acquaintance of hers.

Police say during the investigation, Holbrook made statements that implicated her intent to harm the man. The victim was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center with a serious injury, according to police. There was no word Thursday of his condition.

Holbrook was placed under arrest and charged with attempted murder and first degree assault, according to police. After an initial court appearance, she was placed in the Wicomico County Detention Center without bond.
