A 33-year-old Imperial woman was issued a summons for allegedly punching another woman outside the Texas Roadhouse restaurant in Arnold. The victim, a 61-year-old Illinois woman, was not seriously hurt, Cpl. Brett Ackermann said.
The incident happened about 6 p.m. May 16, after the suspect saw her child behind a truck that was backing up in the parking lot outside the restaurant, 806 Arnold Commons Drive. The suspect allegedly went to the passenger side of the truck and punched the Illinois woman, who was in the passenger seat, Ackermann said.
When officers arrived at the scene, the suspect was gone. However, police identified her, and she was issued a summons to appear in Municipal Court for fourth-degree assault, Ackermann said.
