(Sept. 6, 2019) A welfare call about an intoxicated woman turned into a bloody assault, with police accusing Nacqueese J. Humphrey, 18, of Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania, of hitting the woman and severely injuring her.
According to the police report, officers on scene responding to the welfare call saw Humphrey punch the victim in the face.
The victim fell, hit her head on the ground and lost consciousness.
Police reported that an officer had to roll the victim onto her back because she was lying face down in a puddle of her own blood, which almost suffocated her.
The victim eventually regained consciousness, but could not communicate—she was heavily intoxicated and had suffered a jawbone fracture, the police report said.
The victim was originally taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center, but was then transferred to Shock Trauma in Baltimore.
According to witnesses, the victim and Humphrey had spoken on the phone before he arrived on scene.
Witnesses told police that they had heard a car alarm, and later Humphrey confirmed that he had smashed the victim’s car window.
Police reported finding footprints on the rear window located on the driver’s side of the victim’s car, which matched the pattern on the bottom of Humphrey’s shoe.
Neither the relationship between the two nor the motive for Humphrey’s attack was confirmed in the police report.
Humphrey faces charges of second-degree assault, disorderly conduct, malicious destruction of property, resisting with arrest and reckless endangerment.
