Charges dropped against Md. woman accused of stabbing ex-boyfriend

A New Carrollton, Maryland, woman was arrested Monday under allegations of stabbing her ex-boyfriend, but charges have since been dropped, police said.

The victim accused his ex-girlfriend, Dajah Hargrove of driving to the 5900 block of Fisher Road in Temple Hills, stabbing the victim twice, taking his phone and fleeing the scene. An investigation revealed Hargrove was not, in fact, on the scene at the time of the stabbing.

The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment. His identity has not been released.

Deputies investigating the case found Hargrove at her home, according to a news release. One of her relatives told police she was inside.

Hargrove was taken into custody and transported to county police detectives. She faced charges of first and second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and theft charges.

According to a Prince George’s County spokesperson, the charges were later dropped after an investigation revealed Hargrove was not present when the stabbing took place.

The investigation is ongoing.

Hargrove was granted a restraining order against the stabbing victim on April 10 in Prince George’s County. According to the county’s sheriff’s office, the order was sent to D.C., where the victim lived, for service.
