A 42-year-old Lakeside woman was arrested Friday night after allegedly assaulting her husband with a bamboo stick, according to a press release from Coos County Sheriff’s Office (CCSO).
At about 8:49 p.m., May 12, CCSO deputies were called out to a home in the 97700 block of North Lake Rd. in Lakeside after a woman called 9-1-1 to report her husband had sustained a head injury.
The woman, however, was unable to described to the 9-1-1 dispatcher how her husband’s injury had occurred.
Deputies arrived and spoke with the woman, Elizabeth Moule, 42, of Lakeside, and suspected she may have been under the influence of narcotics.
Moule reportedly had told deputies her husband attempted to hurt himself. However, deputies spoke with Moule’s husband, who told them he had asked Moule about his chainsaw and what she had done with it.
Moule’s husband also told deputies Moule reported she had pawned the chainsaw, and “flipped out” on him when he asked her for the paperwork from the pawn shop. Moule reportedly struck her husband three times in the head with a bamboo stick while he was bent over starting a fire in the wood stove.
Deputies saw Moule’s husband had several cuts on his head and face. He was treated at the scene by medics.
The bamboo stick, about three feet in length, was recovered by deputies. The stick was found to have had fresh blood on the end of it. When questioned by deputies, Moule denied assaulting her husband.
Moule was transported to Coos County Jail on charges of second-degree assault (domestic) and unlawful use of a weapon.
