Fight between two women lands one in jail

RICHMOND — A West Main Street woman has been charged with felony assault after police say she struck a relative with a glass vase.

Elizabeth A. Deaton, 22, was charged this weekend with second-degree assault, possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Richmond police responded to call late Sunday morning about a disturbance in the 500 block of West Main Street, according to an RPD news release.

The officers met with a male resident, and then they heard a verbal altercation between Deaton and a female relative that escalated into a physical assault.

The officers had to separate the two, and they learned that Deaton had struck the other woman with a glass vase, causing a laceration to the victim’s head behind her ear, the release stated.

The victim was checked and cleared by the EMS, and she sought treatment at Baptist Health-Richmond on her own.

After Deaton was taken into custody, the officers reported finding a marijuana cigarette, two used syringes and a burnt spoon in her possession.
