A Milwaukee woman was arrested following a domestic disturbance in the Village of Plover and is facing reckless endangering, disorderly conduct and criminal damaging charges.
Kennyatta Maclin, 19, appeared via video in Portage County Courtroom on Monday before Judge Thomas Eagon.
On June 19, officers from the Plover Police Department were dispatched to a residence in the 3300 block of Patty Dr. where a woman reportedly had attacked two individuals with a knife and a pole.
A female resident of the home told police Maclin had swung the pole at a male individual while he was holding a 9-month-old child and threatened both of them. Maclin then allegedly held the knife against the female witness’s throat and threatened to cut her. Other witnesses gave similar statements.
A knife was found on Maclin when police took her into custody.
Prior to the attack, Maclin had been yelling and threatening the victims, pounding on the door and throwing bricks and rocks through the windows to the residence.
She was arrested and transported to the Portage County Jail.
Assistant District Attorney Cass cousins requested a $2,500 cash bond, which Judge Eagon ordered.
Maclin remains in the Portage County Jail and is due back in court on July 6 for an initial appearance.
