SHARPSBURG — A Sharpsburg man was charged with several offenses after his ex-girlfriend was cut on her left side and left hand with a knife Sunday morning at her house along Shepherdstown Pike, according to the Washington County Sheriff’s Office.

Randolph Vernon Morey, 38, of 113 E. Main St., is charged with first-degree assault, second-degree assault, reckless endangerment, dangerous weapon with intent to injure, false imprisonment, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia, police said Monday.

He was being held on $200,000 bond Monday night at the Washington County Detention Center, jail officials said.

At about 6:50 a.m. Sunday, deputies were sent to 616 Picadilly Drive in Hagerstown for a report of an assault, police said.

The victim in the case went to that address after the assault, according to Greg Alton, an investigator with the sheriff’s office.

An investigation revealed that Morey entered his ex-girlfriend’s home earlier that morning and assaulted her, police said.

The victim suffered a cut to her left side and left hand, injuries she told deputies were due to being cut with a knife, police said.

The woman was treated at Meritus Medical Center and released, police said.

Morey was taken into custody at his home by Maryland State Police troopers and Police Chief Jeff Hewett of the Boonsboro Police Department, police said.

Deputies searched Morey’s apartment and found suspected marijuana, paraphernalia and a pair of jeans with suspected blood stains on them, police said.
