On August 11, 2015, at about 10:00 PM, an officer responded to Citizen’s Park in the 5400 block of W. 22nd Avenue regarding an altercation that occurred during a softball game. The officer’s investigation revealed that members of the two softball teams had been involved in several verbal confrontations throughout the game that culminated a member of one team hitting a member of the other team on the back of his head with an open hand. The suspect fled the area before the officer arrived at the location. The umpire at the game confirmed that members of both teams had been involved in verbal confrontations throughout the game. The Edgewater Recreation Department was advised of the situation.

The officers’ investigation revealed that the disturbance involved a domestic violence incident during which a male and female victim sustained minor injuries during an altercation with the male victim’s ex-girlfriend. In addition, a tire on the male victim’s vehicle parked in the apartment parking lot and a mattress in the apartment unit were slashed by a knife. The suspect, a 22-year-old female resident of Edgewater, was arrested and booked into the Jefferson County Jail for menacing with a deadly weapon, 3rd degree assault, child abuse and criminal mischief.
