PORTLAND — Portland police charged a local woman with robbery, assault and theft after she allegedly attacked a man she knew with a fork and a butter knife.

Police say Miranda Snowdon, 25, had gone to an apartment in the 200 block of Cumberland Avenue Saturday to retrieve some of her belongings and decided to take a Toshiba laptop belonging to the resident. During a confrontation, she grabbed the utensils and caused a minor cut on the victim, police said.

Police say they made contact with a local pawn shop and had the laptop returned to the owner.

Snowdon was taken to Cumberland County Jail pending a court appearance.
