(BLOOMFIELD) - A Midland woman made an initial appearance in Greene Superior Court on Monday afternoon on a pair of charges related to an altercation that took place May 8.
Nick Schneider of the Greene County Daily World reports that Angel Page, 23, entered not-guilty pleas to battery in the presence of a minor - a class D felony; and refusal to aid an officer - a class A misdemeanor.
A no-contact order for the victim of the alleged attack was approved by the judge.
A pre-trial conference was set for 2:30 p.m. on July 2.
Page was released after posting $5,500 bond.
She is alleged to have battered Jessica L. Page on the afternoon of May 8, according to a probable cause affidavit filed by Jasonville Assistant Police Chief James Gadberry.
Gadberry, who was assisting the Greene County Sheriff's Department on domestic dispute call in Midland, said three individuals - including Angel Page - pulled up to the scene and jumped out of their vehicle and proceeded toward Jessica Page.
Officer Gadberry concentrated his efforts on detaining the two males from getting to Jessica Page, but Angel Page ignored his orders to return to the vehicle and got past him.
"Angel Page without provocation began hitting the victim with a closed fist in the face, head and upper torso knocking the victim to the ground where she continued to hit her until the two could be separated," Gadberry wrote in the affidavit.
Present during the attack were three children family members ages 5 months, 4 years and 5 years, Gadberry noted.
