SALISBURY, Md.- A 22-year-old Salisbury woman is facing assault and related charges following accusations that she stabbed a man after throwing a cement bird bath on his car. 

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office reported that on Friday, April 1, Sierra Lanea Branch went to a home on the 7000 block of Fentral Avenue in Salisbury, where the father of her child was staying. The man told a sheriff deputy that Branch demanded that he leave with her but when he refused, she picked up the bird bath and threw it onto the hood of his vehicle. Branch then reportedly threw a brick at the windshield of his vehicle before coming at him with a knife and stabbing him in the shoulder, investigators said. 

Authorities said Branch was gone upon the arrival of the deputy, who learned that the victim and Branch are no longer in a relationship with each other but have a child together.

Branch was charged with first- and second-degree assault, malicious destruction of property and reckless endangerment. She was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bond.
