Two women were arrested Sunday after one allegedly assaulted a Hamden woman and tried to run her over with her car.
Police got a report of a street fight in the area of Dixwell Avenue and Arch Street about 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning, according to spokesman Capt. Ronald Smith.
The 28-year-old victim told police that when she arrived at her North Street home, the two woman approached her and began assaulting her. One of the women, identified as Julie Schiavo, 25, of 18 Dogwood Drive, Prospect, tried to hit her with her car, the victim told police.
"Moments later, the victim and her boyfriend were traveling in the area of Dixwell Avenue and Arch Street when Schiavo allegedly placed her vehicle in reverse and struck their vehicle 4 times," Smith said. "The 28 year-old victim suffered head and neck injuries. She was transported to Yale-New Haven Hospital for medical treatment."
A short time later New Haven police arrested Schiavo and her passenger, Ashley Thompson, 22, of 130 Hillview Avenue, Waterbury, according to Smith. They were turned over to Hamden Police.
Schiavo was charged with criminal attempt to commit first-degree assault, first degree criminal mischief, third-degree assault, reckless endangerment, two counts of breach of peace and violation of a protective order.
She was held in lieu of $10,000 bond and was arraigned Monday in Meriden Superior Court.
Thompson was charged with breach of peace and released on a written promise to appear in Meriden Superior Court on April 4.
