Update: Rochester woman injures deputy during domestic dispute

A 21-year-old Rochester woman was arrested Saturday afternoon on suspicion of second-degree assault after she allegedly “kicked, bit, scratched and punched” a Thurston County sheriff’s deputy.

The deputy was dispatched to the 3900 block of 183rd Ave. SW, following a report that the woman had picked up a shovel and was threatening her husband.

The deputy arrived on scene and found the woman on the porch.

Here’s what happened next, according to a news release:

“The deputy attempted to detain her and she became verbally and physically hostile towards the deputy. She attacked the deputy by kicking, biting, scratching and punching at him.”

The woman was then subdued with a Taser gun and taken into custody with the help of her husband.

The deputy allegedly received several scratches to his face and a bone was broken in his right hand.

The woman was booked into the Thurston County Jail and is set to make her first court appearance on Tuesday, Lt. Cliff Ziesemer said Monday.

The same woman had recently been released from the Lewis County Jail for an assault on a DOC officer, he said.
