Woman faces assault charge

CUMBERLAND — A Cumberland woman standing on the on-ramp to Interstate 68 off Harrison Street was arrested Friday after she allegedly bit an officer.

Janice Lee Youmans, 50, was charged with second-degree assault and disorderly conduct in the 4:39 p.m. incident.

Cumberland Police said an officer saw Youmans standing with two duffel bags and watched as vehicles stopped to avoid hitting her. He told Youmans she was not allowed to walk on the interstate and told her to leave. Police said she then dropped her bags and walked further onto the road.

She was placed under arrest but resisted and struggled with the officer who she also allegedly bit.

Youmans remained jail-ed at the Allegany County Detention Center on $20,000 bond Saturday evening.

Terry Lynn Ford Sr., 43, of Gay Street, was charged with wearing/carrying a concealed deadly weapon and disorderly conduct following the 10:22 p.m. incident, Cumberland Police said.

Officers were called to the scene because Ford allegedly was causing a disturbance and was armed with a knife. When officers arrived, Ford denied having the knife but an officer saw the handle of a large butcher knife sticking out the back of his pants.

The knife was removed without incident.
