Woman arrested for assault with deadly weapon
TRUXTON – Raema Kaye Sumatzkuku, 28, of Peach Springs, was arrested July 8 for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to a call in the 16000 block of Highway 66 in which a man said Sumatzkuku had knocked on his door and asked to use his bathroom.
He allowed her inside and heard a loud noise, and when she left the bathroom, he noticed a glass bottle appeared to have been thrown. When he told her to clean it up, she became angry and combative, grabbing a wooden tool and hitting him in the head.
The victim tried to hold her, but was bitten on the arm. Sumatskuku went in the kitchen and grabbed a knife and moved toward the victim, at which time he drew a gun and told her to leave.
Deputies saw several items in disarray at the home supporting his statements, including the knife on the hallway floor.
