Woman charged with domestic assault in Highgate

HIGHGATE — A 26-year-old man was arrested on multiple charges following an incident in Highgate yesterday.

Authorities say they were notified of an ongoing physical altercation on Thornton Drive at around 6:20 p.m.

Police say Shalee Turner, of Highgate, had fled the scene on foot when they arrived.

Turner was later located at a different home in Highgate.

According to the report, she assaulted a family or household member, and while doing so, a child was present to witness the assault.

Following an investigation, police say that Turner interfered with the victim’s access to emergency services by disconnecting the victim from 911 via rendering the phone inoperable.

She was taken into custody and released on a flash citation to appear in court today to answer to the charges of domestic assault, interference with access to emergency services, and offense committed in the presence of a child.
