ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) -- Anne Arundel County police say they've arrested a woman for attempting to rob a gas station and that the woman later bit a detective.

Police say they were called to a gas station at 5423 Southern Maryland Blvd. in Lothian around 8:30 a.m. Friday. Officers were told that a woman wearing a green sweatshirt and sunglasses attempted to rob the business using a note. The woman left without obtaining any money, and two employees working at the time were not injured.

Police say they arrested 29-year-old Sherry Hunt of Edgewater after an investigation and that she was positively identified as the suspect by witnesses. Police say Hunt became violent and assaulted an officer and several detectives, biting one of them.

Hunt did not appear to have a listed phone number.
