COLUMBIA, Md. (FOX 5 DC) - Howard County police have charged a 20-year-old man in the assault of an elderly woman on a walking trail in Columbia last week.

Officials said Traquan Malik Waller, of no fixed addressed, is charged with attempted murder, assault and reckless endangerment in what they say was a "random act."

Waller is currently hospitalized on an unrelated issue and will be detained there until transported to booking.

The woman, bleeding, was able to make her way back inside the lobby of her senior living facility.

A neighbor called 911.
