A 63-year-old Fort McCoy woman was arrested after she allegedly attacked a male victim with a wooden board.
On Thursday, a Marion County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to a residence on NE 138th Terrace in Fort McCoy in reference to a domestic disturbance. Upon arrival, the male victim told the deputy that he had been battered by Rosa Lynn Garrison during an incident that had occurred the previous day.
According to the victim, he was repairing the interior of one of the trailers located behind Garrison’s residence on Wednesday when a verbal altercation ensued between the two of them. The victim stated that the argument was regarding a paint brush.
Garrison grabbed a “wooden stick,” which was later determined to be a piece of baseboard, and she allegedly began striking the victim on his right forearm. The victim stated that he was also struck on his left thigh.
During the altercation, Garrison allegedly grabbed the victim with her hands, and the victim recalled being hit and scratched on his face.
The MCSO report indicated that the deputy located the broken piece of baseboard and dried blood was observed on it. A nail was also sticking out of the board.
The deputy noted in the report that the victim’s arm had markings that were consistent with being struck with the board, and his left leg had multiple cuts and significant bruising. His arm had cuts which appeared to be from the nail in the board, and his face had markings from where Garrison had allegedly scratched him.
When the deputy attempted to interview Garrison, she refused to answer any questions about the incident.
Garrison was arrested and transported to Marion County Jail where she is currently being held without bond. She is facing a felony charge for aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.
A court date has not been scheduled yet, according to jail records.
