    PD: Neighbor Punches Pregnant Woman Over Slashed Tires
    Middletown Police Department
    A woman is facing charges after her pregnant neighbor said she attacked her and her son over a confrontation about slashed tires in Middletown, police said.

    Police arrested a Middletown woman who is accused of attacking her pregnant neighbor and the woman's  son over a confrontation about slashed tires, police said.

    Police were dispatched to 44 Stack Street in Middletown at 11:02 a.m. on Monday to investigate a fight.

    A woman pregnant with twins told police who responded that her neighbor, Danielle Jacobs ran at her, yelling "what did you say" when she said something to her about how her tires were slashed.

    The woman said she suspected Jacobs was responsible after she discovered around 8 a.m. that the tires of her car were slashed. 

    The victim then told police that she brought it up when she got home around three hours later and Jacobs threw punches at her.

    The pregnant woman threw punches back in defense, she told police. Her son tried to intervene, but she told police Jacobs punched him too and he didn't hit back.

    The pregnant woman had an abrasion over her eye and told police Jacobs scraped her.

    The two women have had problems in the past, the victim told police.

    Jacobs told police that her neighbor attacked her near her car and she also had minor abrasions on her face, according to police documents.

    A witness who lives in the area told police she heard yelling and saw Jacobs run from the street to the other woman's porch and threw punches, police said.

    Police charged Jacobs with assault of a pregnant person, third-degree assault and breach of peace.

    She was issued a $50,000 surety bond and is scheduled to appear in court on July 16.
