Tiffany Patricia Renee Stevens, 33, of Austin was charged on Wednesday in Mower County District Court with felony second-degree assault with a dangerous weapon and gross misdemeanor domestic assault.
According to the court complaint, officers responded to a welfare check call at 1:04 a.m. on Tuesday in the 400 block of Fifth Street Northwest. They made contact with Stevens at the residence and asked if a particular man was there. She told them he had left the residence 20 minutes earlier and she did not know where he went. She indicated that he had broken into the residence and wanted a jacket. When asked if there was a physical altercation, Stevens allegedly said yes because she wanted him out of the house, where he had been living since July 2017.
The officers later found the man and observed that he had a bloody two-inch laceration on the right side of his face and blood on his sweatshirt and pants, according to the complaint. He told the officers Stevens allegedly threw a “fingernail polish bottle, vases, lamps, whatever she could get her hands on” at him. He was transported to the hospital, later telling one of the officers Stevens had struck him with a “big (expletive) lamp.”
