Sutter woman, teen arrested after alleged wrench attack
A Sutter woman and a teenager were jailed Wednesday, accused of attacking a Yuba City woman with a wrench.
Roxana Peters, 33, was booked into the Sutter County Jail without bail on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon. A 17-year-old Sutter male was booked into Bi-County Juvenile Hall, according to booking records.
The victim, a 43-year-old Yuba City woman whose name was not released, suffered a small bruise on her forearm, but broke Peters' jaw while defending herself, Yuba City police said.
"It appears the juvenile had the wrench and attempted to assist Ms. Peters in the assault," spokeswoman Shawna Pavey said.
Police described the weapon as a "12-inch click-stop wrench."
Pavey said police are still trying to determine what sparked Wednesday's violence.
Police responded at 10:22 p.m. to a home in the 1500 block of Esplanade Way and learned of the altercation between Peters and the other woman.
Officers could not say whether the attack was connected to an incident earlier in the evening at Peters' home on Elm Street in Sutter.
Peters called the Sutter County Sheriff's Department at 6:39 p.m., Sgt. Jon Duffy confirmed.
"It's being investigated as a possible misdemeanor battery and a misdemeanor trespassing," Duffy said. "It's an ongoing investigation, I can't get into too many details at this time."
Duffy said Peters complained about Sutter resident Cleo Roark, 46, and said the reported victim was a 17-year-old boy. Roark was not arrested.
There was no word on whether it was the same teenager who was later arrested.
Peters is scheduled for arraignment today in Sutter County Superior Court.
