Newell was being taken at the county detention center without bond. The public defender’s office told Thursday that Newell will be allotted representation.

Both male and female residents suffered wounds. The woman was healed at the scene and the man was brought to Johns Hopkins Bayview Medical Center with what are believed to be non-life-threatening wounds, according to the sheriff’s office.

Michael MacPherson, president, and CEO of Freedom Federal Credit Union proved Newell was an operator of the credit union.

Newell was dismissed following his arrest and MacPherson said vetting procedures while hiring Newell met all standards. A search of online databases revealed he faced two traffic incidents.

“We are horrified and appalled to hear of the circumstances that led to the assault and injury of a longtime part of our credit union,” MacPherson said in a report. “Our thoughts go out to him, and his parents, during this difficult time.”
