NEW CASTLE — A 33-year-old North Hill resident suffered injuries after a group of people attacked her at her home.

The woman told police that Sherrie Webb, 28, of 1234 Randolph Street, was one of three people who had gone to her house in the 300 block of Berger Street around 5:30 p.m. Saturday and another female ran onto the porch and punched her in the face.

The resident fell to the floor and the three then went into her house without her permission and kicked and punched her, she told New Castle police. She said the woman who punched her also slashed her with her brooch pin on the face and chest and on her nose, and at one point, the woman bit her on her right arm.

Another of the three suspects hit her in the head with a lamp and broke the lamp, the victim told police.

Police have charged Webb with simple assault, harassment, criminal mischief and criminal conspiracy to commit burglary aggravated assault, recklessly endangering another person and simple assault and harassment.

Police said additional charges may be pending in the case against the other alleged offenders, pending further investigation. They learned that Webb formerly had been a tenant at the house where the alleged attack occurred.

A warrant has been issued for Webb’s arrest.
