Woman Accused Of Assaulting Wheelchair-Bound Boyfriend
AMBRIDGE (KDKA) — Police say it was a one-sided fight from the start.
A woman is charged with beating up her boyfriend who is wheelchair-bound. It was back in May at a home in the 900-block of Glenwood Avenue in Ambridge, Beaver County.
Police say 27-year-old Chanice Adkins attacked Jeremy Bryant and at one point threw him down a flight of stairs. Bryant is in a wheelchair.
Police say they went to the house after Bryant’s 12-year-old son ran the short distance to the police station because he was afraid.
The boy told them Adkins had allegedly been drinking all day and argued with his father about his father’s 3-year-old daughter with another woman.
Investigators say when they arrived; they found the victim lying in the driveway with his wheelchair nearby.
Adkins was standing over him, but when she saw the officers, Adkins ran inside the house, slammed the door and began yelling obscenities at them from a second-floor window.
Police say Bryant was struck, shoved, choked, kicked and punched in the face several times by Adkins. She also allegedly tried to use a stun gun on him.
Adkins is in the Beaver County Jail. She has a preliminary hearing Thursday morning at the Beaver County Courthouse.
Police say her boyfriend intends to drop the charges against her. But that probably won’t help her get released, the jail told KDKA’s Brenda Waters Wednesday afternoon that Adkins is also being held on a DUI charges and she is wanted in Ohio on another assault charge.
