A woman was in jail Monday after she allegedly stabbed someone in the head who tried to break up a fight at an Elk Plain mobile home park.
Marlene Marcella Barron, 38, pleaded not guilty Monday to second-degree assault. Pierce County Court Commissioner Meagan Foley set her bail at $15,000.
Court records did not list an attorney for Barron.
Charging papers and the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department gave this account:
A fight broke out Saturday night between people in two mobile homes in the 6600 block of 238th Street East.
A deputy responded to find about 30 people yelling and standing around the mobile homes. A woman in bloody clothing was on the ground.
Fire crews took the woman to the hospital with a 3-inch cut on her head. The wound didn’t appear to be life-threatening.
Witnesses told the deputy an argument between people in the two mobile homes escalated to pushing and hitting. They said Barron grabbed a woman who tried to break up the fight by her hair, punched her and then cut her with a pocket knife.
If Barron posts bail, she is not to go within 25 feet of the opposing group’s mobile home.
