WINDOM — A local woman was arrested Sunday afternoon after Windom police and the Cottonwood County Sheriff's Office responded to a Windom residence to follow up on a 9-1-1 hangup.
It took some time of officers knocking to get anyone to come to the door, and the woman who eventually answered said it was because she feared getting in trouble. The residence occupant, Cheyenne Narber, 24, was visibly upset and under the influence of alcohol. She told police that the rest of the household had left about 10 minutes before.
The remaining family members were located in a nearby apartment, where an adult household member explained that Narber had returned home after drinking and the two had gotten into an argument. When the other household member attempted to leave with the children, Narber allegedly became violent. The victim had a visible bruise and bloody scrape on their cheek, and fresh scrape marks on the leg.
While attempting to punch and kick the victim, it was reported, Narber missed and injured the child. A mark was left on the child's forehead.
Narber allegedly told the victim she would call 9-1-1 and blame the incident on the victim.
Narber was arrested on charges of felony third-degree assault and misdemeanor domestic assault. She faces a maximum possible sentence of five years in prison and/or a $10,000 fine. She was being held in Cottonwood County Jail with bail set at $10,000 with conditions or $25,000 without conditions.
