  • A pregnant woman told Leavenworth authorities another woman had purposely struck her with a vehicle, a police spokesman said.
    But the driver had a different version of what happened Friday, according to Maj. Dan Nicodemus, deputy chief of the Leavenworth Police Department.
    The incident was reported at 1:46 p.m. Friday in the Woodland Village apartment complex.
    A 23-year-old Leavenworth woman told police she'd been arguing with a 50-year-old Kansas City, Mo., woman. The Leavenworth woman said the other woman then struck her with the front of a 2005 Hyundai sport utility vehicle.
    The Leavenworth woman said the vehicle hit her in the abdomen, and she had soreness in her stomach area. She told police she was three months pregnant. She was transported to Saint John Hospital by Leavenworth County EMS.
    "At some point, the victim walked out of the hospital (against medical advice)," Nicodemus said.
    While walking home, she called police, reporting that the other woman was following her. The suspect was no longer on the scene when police arrived.
    Police were called again around 5:30 p.m. Friday. The Leavenworth woman reported that the other woman had returned to the Woodland Village apartment complex. Police arrived as the Kansas City, Mo., woman was leaving the complex.
    Nicodemus said the Kansas City, Mo., woman told police she had not struck the other woman with her vehicle. The Kansas City, Mo., woman claimed the younger woman had struck the vehicle with her fist.
    The two women apparently had been arguing about a man, Nicodemus said.
    No arrests were made. Nicodemus said a report about the incident will be forwarded to the prosecutor's office.
