arrested for assault
KINGSTON An 18-year-old Kingston woman was arrested by Kitsap County Sheriffs Office deputies March 11 after allegedly physically assaulting a man.
The victim, an 18-year-old Kingston resident, said he had been hit several times by the suspect in the parking lot of the Kingston Kountry Korners shopping center on Miller Bay Road shortly before 2 p.m. The suspect and a 19-year-old Kingston man had parked next to the victim in a red Ford Taurus. The woman got out and hit the victim several times in the face and then she and the 19-year-old man screamed obscenities at the victim.
The suspects later said they assaulted the victim because they heard the victim had made derogatory comments about a Kingston resident who was in a car accident on Hansville Road March 8. The victim believes that the suspects were retaliating because of his comments.
The 19-year-old suspect arrived later at the victims house and yelled profanities again and kicked over a trash can.
The victim said when he arrived home, he found his door had been egged and a dead bird was lying on the doorstep. The suspects told deputies they had no knowledge of that vandalism.
The 18-year-old woman was arrested on charges of fourth degree assault and bail was set at $5,000.
