Kent Police arrested a woman for investigation of fourth-degree assault after she reportedly punched and scratched a former boyfriend in the face for allegedly sleeping with other women.
The man reported the assault at about 2:41 a.m. on Feb. 5 in the 23600 block of 104th Avenue Southeast, according to the police report. Officers noted the man had bloody scratches on his face.
The man told officers he had dated the woman for about six months prior to breaking up about a year ago. He said she had stalked him ever since, even showing up at his job and accusing him of sleeping with other women.
On Feb. 5, the woman followed the man home and confronted him outside of his house. She yelled at him about other women and hit him in the face before fleeing.
The woman lives in Federal Way, so Kent Police asked Federal Way officers to check the woman’s address and to arrest her if she was at home. Federal Way officers arrested the woman and turned her over to Kent Police.
The woman told officers she had confronted the man for cheating on her with other women.
