Three people arrested after reported assault on Jefferson City car


Jefferson City police arrested three people on Sunday after one of them allegedly tried to run over other people in her car.

Officers were called to the 800 block of East Elm Street on Monday afternoon, where witnesses and a victim said a woman attempted to run over the victim and entered a parked car. The incident was recorded.

The suspect initially denied hitting the victim and the other car, but admitted so when police told him the incident was on video, according to a press release from the Jefferson City Police Department.

Police took the suspect to Boone County Jail on suspicion of property damage and assault. She was still in jail Monday morning.

Police say they were sent to the 600 block of Locust Street about two hours later for a disruption involving several people who were part of the previous vehicle incident. Officers arrested two 18-year-old women, one in connection with the vehicle incident and the other in connection with the Locust Street incident.

The 18-year-olds were taken to prison but were released, police said.

Police said the incidents were linked and further arrests were possible. They did not disclose any names of those arrested.
