News outlets report Thomas Stemen was arrested Tuesday after Anne Arundel County police received a tip about the suspect. He is charged with assault and reckless endangerment.

Video from the store in Churchton shows a man follow a woman into the cart area and bump into her on Feb. 18. The woman is then seen looking at her leg and backing out of the store as the man follows her outside.

Police say the woman sought medical attention after the alleged attack. She told officers she believes she was assaulted with a syringe.

It’s unclear whether Stemen has an attorney to speak for him.
