Two women brawled inside the Sandusky police station Wednesday afternoon after one punched the other’s daughter in her middle school classroom earlier in the day.
Elaine Parker, 31, of the 900 block of W. Adams St., and Jessica Jones, 29, of the 1100 block of E. Parish St., were both charged with assault and disorderly conduct.
Just before 9 a.m., Parker entered a Sandusky Middle School classroom and began yelling at a girl her daughter has had problems with, according to a police report.
Parker allegedly punched the 13-year-old in the face, grabbed her neck and put her in a headlock, and the girl returned several punches before teachers stepped in to break up the fight, the report said.
After the girl told her mother, Jessica Jones, about the attack, Jones then met with police in the school’s office. She told them she would take care of the matter herself, the report said, but officers told her to let them handle it. They also warned her she’d be arrested if she went to Parker’s home to start problems.
A while later, Jones caught wind that Parker was being charged at the police station on Meigs Street. She headed there and, finding Parker in the lobby, promptly began assaulting her, the report said.
The two brawled for a bit, nearly knocking portraits off the wall before officers rushed out to break them up, the report said. They arrested Jones and took her to the Erie County jail, where she remains without bond. Parker was served her charges and released on bond.
