FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (WRIC) – After police say she drove her van into her husband as he was walking down the street, a Fredericksburg woman faces an attempted first-degree murder charge.
At about 10:30 p.m. the evening of April 13, a Virginia State Police trooper stopped when he spotted a Chrysler Pacifica facing the wrong direction on Dixon Street. The vehicle was parked in the 500 block of Dixon Street, at the bottom of the westbound ramp from the Blue and Gray Parkway.
According to Fredericksburg City Police spokeswoman Natatia Bledsoe, the officer saw a woman standing over a man, kicking him repeatedly. The officer stepped in and notified Fredericksburg Police.
Witnesses at the scene say they saw a van, which was being driven in the wrong direction, crash into a guard rail. They say a man crawled from under the vehicle and woman climbed out of the van and began attacking him.
The woman, 21-year-old Quaneisha Domonique Torres, was placed in the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond. Her 31-year-old husband, who has not been identified, suffered several injuries: a broken ankle which will require surgery, a head injury which required stitches and other assorted injuries.
Police say the victim was walking toward his home in Hazel Hill at the time of the incident. They don’t know why Torres was angry with her husband, or why he was walking. Stay with ABC 8News for updates on this story.
