December 12, 2018

Sumter County, FL (December 12, 2018) – Police say that a woman from Wildwood attacked a man with a pair of scissors in a home that they shared and was subsequently arrested.

31-year-old Kelli Marie Rasberry was arrested on battery charges on Saturday night at her home on County Road 155. The Sumter County Sheriff’s Office was called to the scene of the incident, where they spoke with the man who was assaulted. He told them that he had been trying to enter a bedroom when he noticed that Rasberry was armed with scissors. He was able to get into the bedroom and lock the door before she could get to him.

He stated that moment later he heard the window smashing and watched as Rasberry threw the pair of scissors through the window. He gathered up her belongings and told her that she had to leave and even took her items to the door. That’s when Rasberry grabbed the man by the neck of his shirt and tore it, then struck him twice on the back of the head.

Police arrested Rasberry on battery charges.  She has since been released on bond.
