Woman charged with felony assault as domestic escalates

CROSSVILLE — A Crossville woman was arrested by Cumberland County sheriff's deputies Saturday night after officers found a man bleeding from the side of his head and found damage to his pickup truck.

Jennifer LeeAnn Simoneau, 28, 416 Prentice St., is charged with felony aggravated assault, disorderly conduct and vandalism of more than $250. The victim was identified as Robert Davis of 3240 Hwy. 70 N. Davis was treated at the scene by Cumberland Emergency Medical Services for a head injury.

Deputies were dispatched to the Hwy. 70 N address on a report of a domestic assault and when Deputy Zach Gilpin and Sgt. Rick Lanzilotta arrived, they were met by Davis, who had a large cut on the right side of his head.

Davis told the deputies he was asleep when his girlfriend arrived at the residence, woke him up and started striking him. She then kicked a kerosene heater over, starting a fire in the residence. Davis fled from the house to call police with Simoneau following.

She then allegedly struck him in the head with a blunt object.

Simoneau, according to Gilpin's report, was hostile toward the officers and threatened to assault them, which resulted in her being taken into custody and placed in a patrol car. While deputies continued their investigation, the suspect reportedly attempted to kick the window out of one of the patrol cars.

The vandalism charge was filed after damage was found to Davis' pickup truck.

Simoneau is to appear in Cumberland County General Sessions Court on Nov. 19.
