CHURCHTON, Md. - Katie Peters says all she was doing was simply returning her cart back to the store—she never knew she’d be stabbed with a syringe in the process.
On February 18th police say Katie Peters was running errands at Christopher’s Fine Foods in Churchton.
When she went to return a shopping cart inside the store 51-year-old Thomas Stemen walked passed her and stabbed her with a syringe.
“I have no clue what was in that needle. It could be rat poison, HIV, trucks, I don’t know what’s in that needle,” says Peters.
She says she got into her car and started to feel a burning sensation.
Peters says she is currently taking medication as a precautionary measure.
Stemen is charged with multiple counts of reckless endangerment and three counts of first degree assault.
