At 10:35 a.m., on Tuesday, Sept. 17, James City County Police responded to the Stratford Hall Apartments in the 400 block of Stratford Road in reference to a female suspect that came through a bedroom window armed with a firearm. The caller was able to flee out the same window in his underwear and call 911. Investigation revealed that the suspect, Margaret “Maggie” Sarah Kloske (24) of Fort Bragg, NC left Fort Bragg this morning and drove to James City County with the intent to kill herself in front of her husband and his girlfriend. Kloske armed with a .45 caliber revolver entered through her husband’s roommate’s bedroom window and then went to her husband’s bedroom door, which was locked. She then started yelling and banging on it and then fired one shot through the door. The husband opened the door and struggled with her knocking the gun from her hand. Kloske then attacked her husband’s 19-year-old girlfriend punching her repeatedly in the head. The girlfriend was able to run out of the apartment. Police arrived on the scene and took Kloske into custody. No one was injured during this incident.
Kloske, a soldier in the US Army stationed at Fort Bragg was charged with breaking & entering with the intent to commit a felony, two counts of attempted malicious wounding, assault & battery, reckless handling of a firearm, and discharging a firearm into an occupied dwelling. She is being held at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail without bond.
