A Bamberg woman was charged with domestic violence after she allegedly assaulted her boyfriend.
On the afternoon of Oct. 4, officers responded to a Lazy Lane address in reference to an assault call. Once on scene, officers came in contact with a male complainant/victim who stated his girlfriend had attacked him with a picture frame and a caulk gun. The officers saw the cuts and scratches on the victim’s upper left arm while talking with him.
The victim took the officers inside the residence to show them where the objects were that had been used as weapons. The room on the right had a broken mirror on the floor that had been in a picture frame. The caulk gun was also on the floor. The victim gave his statement to the officers, and then gave them a picture of his girlfriend so she could be identified.
The victim also requested EMS so his injuries could be checked. However, he declined to go to the hospital.
Upon clearing and beginning to leave the scene, an officer spotted a female that resembled the subject. The officer made contact with the female, and she confirmed she was the subject in question. The officer then took the subject to the police station so she could give her statement. The subject had no visible marks on her person, and she declined to answer any questions after she was read her rights. The subject was charged with third-degree domestic violence. The photographs of the victim’s injuries were attached to the report.
