A Lexington woman was charged with assault Tuesday after she allegedly twice struck another woman she knew with her car, Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said.
At 10:17 p.m. Tuesday, officers were called to Georgetown Road and Michigan Street. Officers talked to a 43-year-old woman, whom Roberts did not identify.
The woman told police that Treina Ashe, 34, intentionally drove up on the sidewalk in a grey Mazda hatchback and struck her as she was walking, Roberts said. The vehicle then backed up, drove forward again and briefly pinned the victim to a fence.
The victim was able to walk to an ambulance and was taken to University of Kentucky Chandler Hospital emergency room for minor injuries to her legs.
Officers later found the suspect, Ashe, and the vehicle on Michigan Street. Ashe was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault, police said.
The relationship between Ashe and the victim was not immediately clear.
