Two men were charged with first-degree assault in Harford County this week in connection with separate incidents.

On Sunday, Maryland State Police troopers from the Bel Air barrack arrived at the home of Nathan and Renee Hecht in the 3000 block of Conowingo Road in Street after Nathan Hecht called 911, according to charging documents.

When troopers arrived at the home around 4:30 a.m., Renee Hecht was unconscious with two large contusions on her forehead and brow, according to charging documents.

Nathan Hecht told police his wife was out at the bar with her friends earlier that night and came home intoxicated. He said they started to argue and it got physical; she allegedly hit and bit him, according to charging documents.

Nathan Hecht said he restrained his wife and may have hit her in the head with his elbow several times, according to charging documents.

Nathan Hecht said his wife threatened to overdose on medication and when he went into the bedroom a short time later she was slumped over and unconscious on the bed, according to charging documents. At that time he called 911.

Renee Hecht was taken to Bayview Medical Center in Baltimore, from where she has since been released.

Emergency room staff said she may have become comatose after ingesting medications.

Nathan Hecht was charged Sunday with first- and second-degree assault because of the severity of his wife’s head injuries, according to charging documents. He was released from the Harford County Detention Center on his own recognizance later that day.

Aberdeen assault

In an unrelated incident in Aberdeen Saturday, someone called 911 to report an assault at the Travel Lodge in Aberdeen.

A short time later, Aberdeen city police arrived at the Travel Lodge in the 800 block of West Bel Air Avenue and spoke with the victims, according to charging documents.

One of the victims said her boyfriend opened their room door and let in Robert Baldwin Jr., a man he knew.

Baldwin became angry and allegedly started swinging a knife around the room; she allegedly slashed her boyfriend in the head and herself in the forearm, according to charging documents.

The victim said Baldwin ran to La Quinta Hotel in the 700 block of West Bel Air Avenue, where he has a room.

Police arrived at the room registered to Baldwin and found Baldwin asleep on the bed with blood on his arms, a knife on the nightstand and a shirt, similar to the one the attacker wore, lying on the floor, according to charging documents.

Baldwin, 47, of the 200 block of North Timber Creek in Ormond Beach, Fla., was charged Saturday with two counts each of first-degree assault, second-degree assault and reckless endangerment.

He was released from the Harford County Detention Center later that day on $25,000 bond.
