Sharon Lee Ward


A 47-year-old Ocean City woman was arrested on May 9 after allegedly stabbing a woman she lived with.

Although Sharon Lee Ward lived with the victim, a Maryland Court Final Domestic Protective Order prohibited her from having any contact with her. But the two argued and during a struggle, Ward allegedly attacked the woman with a kitchen knife, stabbing her multiple times.

The victim fled and, with the assistance of neighbors, contacted police at about 3:50 a.m. Ocean City paramedics treated the victim for neck and shoulder wounds before taking her to Peninsula Regional Medical Center for treatment.

Ward was taken to Atlantic General Hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries before being released to Ocean City police. She was taken to the Public Safety Building, where she was charged with first- and second-degree assault, having a weapon with the intent to injure, reckless endangerment and violation of a protective order.

Ward was being held in the Worcester County jail on $150,000 bond.


Scooter collision

A motor scooter operator was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center early Monday morning after colliding with an Ocean City Police Department patrol car.

The patrol car was stopped at a traffic light in the southbound turn lane at 41st Street when Edward Thomas Johnson, 25, of Salisbury, drove his scooter into its rear, causing him to be ejected.

Johnson was wearing a helmet, but it became dislodged because of the collision and failed to fully protect him. The officer in the patrol car rendered immediate aid to Johnson before paramedics arrived.

The officer was treated at Atlantic General Hospital for minor injuries and was released.

The Ocean City Police Department press release said Johnson was believed to be under the influence of alcohol at the time of the collision.
