(BLOOMINGTON) – A Bloomington woman was arrested after Bloomington Police responded to a 911 hang-up call on Friday night in the 1000 block of West 12th Street.
Police went to the home around 10 p.m. and talked to a 28-year-old who had attempted to call the police.
The woman told police her sister, 27-year-old Bria Hunt, came to her home and the two had been drinking. Hunt attempted to leave, and the caller prevented her from leaving because she had been drinking by taking Hunt’s car keys.
Hunt allegedly stated pulling the caller’s hair and choking her. The woman tried to dial 911, but Hunt allegedly knocked the phone out of her sister’s hand causing the call to end.
Police say the caller had visible injuries, but refused medical treatment and the incident happened in front of the caller’s two children ages 9 and 6.
Hunt was arrested on preliminary charges of interfering in the reporting of a crime, domestic battery in the presence of children and strangulation. She is being held in the Monroe County Jail on a $3,000 bond.
While at the home officer located a 17-year-old girl who had been reported as a runaway from a local youth shelter. The teen had marijuana.
Police says the two adults were not responsible for the teen’s runaway status.
