The attack occurred on Sunday afternoon shortly after a group of males attending a party in a home on Tyrella Avenue got into a fight inside the home, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson. The victim living in the home was confronted by a man who "became upset" and attacked her when she tried to leave, Nelson said.
Officers arrived around 5:40 p.m. following reports of a domestic disturbance at the home. The woman suffered serious injuries to her face following the attack, Nelson said. She was transported to a local hospital for treatment.
The suspect did not live in the home, and it's unclear what caused the initial fight at the party, Nelson said. His name was not immediately released to the public pending an active investigation by the police department.
Homeless man arrested for trespassing, burglary
A 49-year-old homeless man was arrested last week after he allegedly broke into a North Bayshore business in order to hook his computer to the internet and a power source.
Police say the man had connected electrical and internet cords through the door of the business, which had reportedly been pried open, on the 1300 block of Pear Avenue around 9 a.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 1. The cords were plugged into an electrical outlet inside a "previously locked electrical room," according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.
Witnesses called police after the man reportedly refused to leave the business. Officers arrested the man on burglary and trespassing charges, as well as possession of drug paraphernalia.
