  • A Leavenworth woman was arrested after she allegedly struck her aunt with a candleholder, a police spokesman said.
    The incident was reported at 9:22 p.m. Wednesday in the 800 block of South Seventh Street.
    The 24-year-old suspect reportedly had been intoxicated and out of control.
    In addition to allegedly striking her 69-year-old aunt, the suspect is alleged to have thrown a coffee table, causing it to break. Several items that were on the coffee table also were broken, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    Nicodemus said the suspect suffered several cuts from the broken items. She also was injured when she allegedly swung the candleholder at her aunt. The victim blocked the swing and the candleholder was deflected back and struck the suspect above her eye.
    The suspect was transported to the hospital and treated for her cuts. She then was taken to the Leavenworth County Jail. She was arrested for allegations of aggravated battery and criminal damage to property.
    Nicodemus said the victim had a contusion from reportedly being hit in the arm with the candleholder. Some of her hair was pulled out during the altercation.
    The two women reportedly were living at the residence where the incident occurred.
