Police: Richmond woman assaulted husband, then tried to hit him with her vehicle

A Richmond woman was charged Tuesday with assaulting her husband in multiple ways and then trying to hit him with a vehicle, police said Wednesday.

Felicia Delph, 22, was arrested on a charge of second-degree assault and first-degree wanton endangerment, Richmond police said in a news release.

Officers were called to Delph's home on Edwards Avenue about a domestic-violence complaint.

Police met with Delph's husband, who told police that he awoke at 6 a.m. when Delph began punching him in the torso. The husband fled into the kitchen, where Delph began throwing knives at him. The victim told police he blocked the knives with his hands.

Delph then threw her husband's wallet into the street, and when he went to retrieve it, she tried to strike him with her vehicle, police said.

Officers saw several wounds on the husband's hands that were consistent with knife injuries.

A short time later, officers found Delph on Berea Road and arrested her. She was being held in the Madison County jail.
