Lesser Charges in Pikesville Shooting Dropped


Some charges against a Baltimore woman who is accused of harassing and attacking a young Pikesville couple were dropped in Baltimore County Circuit Court on Aug. 28.

Stephanie Kamlot has two other cases pending against her in roughly two years of incidents. She is alleged to have placed razor blades under Pikesville resident Leah Efron’s car tires, assaulted her at Seven Mile Market and harassed Efron and her husband, Noam, at their former residence in Pickwick Apartments. In May, Kamlot was arrested after allegedly pulling out a handgun replica and throwing a large rock through a window of the Efrons’ home in the 3100 block of Northbrook Road.

The charges dismissed were malicious destruction of property and trespassing. A disposition for second-degree assault, related to the market incident, is scheduled for Sept. 9, and a hearing date has yet to be set for charges of second-degree assault (a second count), stalking, harassment, malicious destruction of property, fourth-degree burglary and intimidating a juror.

Kamlot’s attorney, Marc Snyder, hopes to get the remaining two cases heard at once and will plea not criminally responsible in order to get Kamlot help.

“It would probably be in a closed hospital setting where she’d get the treatment she needs and she would not be able to leave until they felt she got the help she needs,” Snyder said.

Noam Efron attended a district court hearing in July in which the charges that were dismissed in circuit court were first heard.

“As long as she’s in custody, I’m fine with it,” Efron said of Snyder trying to get all the charges heard at once.
