November 19, 2007

A Cascade man was charged with attempted second-degree murder Sunday in connection with a Saturday incident during which he struck his girlfriend with his pickup truck, Maryland State Police said.

The woman was pinned against the garage door at the couple's residence, troopers said in a news release.

She was taken to Washington County Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries, troopers said.

The assault had started at the Chocolate Park Tavern parking lot in the area of Md. 491 and Pennersville Road. The man forced his girlfriend into his pickup and drove to their home on Royer Road, troopers said.

The woman was struck with the pickup outside the home, troopers alleged.

John William Spahr, 33, couldn't be found Saturday night but turned himself in to the Hagerstown barrack Sunday afternoon.

He was also charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and kidnapping.

Spahr was being held without bond at the Washington County Detention Center Monday morning, a jail spokeswoman said.
