SALISBURY, Md.- Authorities say a 17-year-old Wicomico High School student is facing assault and related charges after she tried to attack another student with a pair of scissors and threatened to cut her throat.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office said it happened Monday morning at the school, located at 201 Long Ave. in Salisbury. According to the Sheriff's Office, which investigated the incident, the victim stated that Nasjea Holbrook of Delmar, Md. tried to cut or stab her with a pair of scissors in a school hallway.

According to charging documents, the investigating deputy viewed video footage of the incident, which occurred at around 10:40 a.m., and noticed a pair of scissors in Holbrook's hand as she walked down the hallway with another female student. According to charging documents, "Holbrook had the scissors in her hand in a weapon-ready manner." As both students continued walking down the hallway, the other student attempted to stop Holbrook and take the scissors away from her and almost got cut herself, charging documents show.

Investigators said Holbrook held on to the scissors and as she walked toward the victim threw the scissors at her, nearly hitting her. Charging documents incident that the scissors were thrown with such force that a blade penetrated a hard plastic chair and remained stuck there.

The deputy confiscated the scissors and believed that an assault would have occurred if the other student who was walking with Holbrook had not intervened, according to charging documents. 

The documents go on to state that once back at the school office, the deputy heard Holbrook tell the principal, "My plan was to cut that b****'s throat." 

At the conclusion of the investigation, Holbrook was arrested and charged as an adult with first- and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, disorderly conduct, dangerous weapon on school property and disturbing school operations. She was released on $5,000 bond pending a Nov. 28 preliminary hearing.
