Tasha M. Neeley, 20, of 251 Pleasant St., DeGraff, was charged with assault following an incident Friday afternoon in DeGraff.
Deputies were dispatched to 247 Cretcher St. about 12:50 p.m. in reference to Ina M. Pratt, 55, of Wapakoneta, reporting that Ms. Neeley had assaulted her.
Dispatchers also received a second call from a witness who observed a fight while walking out of Steve’s Market & Deli, 300 Cretcher St. The witness said he saw a younger woman assaulting an older woman, and then the younger woman reportedly left the scene in a green van.
Deputies talked with Ms. Pratt, who had sustained a cut to her left ear and scratches around her neck. She said Ms. Neeley had been at the gas station next door when she approached Ms. Pratt and yelled at her and struck her face and neck.
The suspect’s vehicle was located and Ms. Neeley was transported to the Logan County Jail.
