A Maryland man who was arrested for stabbing a woman with a syringe in a grocery store had other syringes filled with semen in his possession, according to police.

Thomas Bryon Stemen, 51, was charged on Tuesday for assault and reckless endangerment after he was accused of coming up behind victim Katie Peters and sticking a syringe in her right buttocks. 

Peters said she confronted Stemen after the alleged attack, who reportedly told her: 'I know it feels like a bee sting, doesn't it?'

On Friday testing of the syringes confiscated from Stemen, including from his car, found the needles contained semen, police said.  

They later clarified that they 'are unsure if any of those were the syringe in question,' walking back their initial statement that said semen was in the syringe Peters was stabbed with.
