Woman arrested for hitting, cutting a man with broken glass
April 15, 2021
Police charged a 33-year-old woman Monday morning with domestic violence assault, a class B felony, after she allegedly hit her boyfriend in the head with a glass jar in a home on South Sawmill Road.
Police chief Heath Scott arrived at the scene where he noticed “a large amount of blood” on the kitchen floor and near the doorway.
The man also sustained a deep cut to his thumb.
“He believed it was cut when he placed his head down and raised his arms in a defensive posture,” Scott wrote in a probable cause statement. “(He) said she was hitting him with the glass when he felt blood dripping down his arm.”
The man was transported to the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium clinic where he received three surgical staples to close the wound on the back of his head. He was prepped for a medevac because doctors thought his hand would require surgery, according to the probable cause statement.
The man told police the woman possessed methamphetamine along with “scales, baggies and needles.”
The woman, who sustained a small cut to her hand, was searched at the clinic and no drugs were found.
Her vehicle was also searched. No drug charges were filed as of Tuesday afternoon.
She was arraigned in court Tuesday. The judge held her on a $2,500 cash bond and she later posted bond. The woman was ordered not to have contact with the man or use controlled substances.
The woman has an arrest warrant on her in Montana in connection with a misdemeanor violation, Scott said.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for April 23.
