ELYRIA — Two Elyria women were arrested overnight after police were called to a domestic incident on Bell Avenue.
According to a police report, Jessica Gunderman, 29, is charged with domestic violence, and Brittney Baker, 32, is charged with obstructing official business.
Officers were first called to 141 Bell Avenue about 11:15 last night after receiving a report of a male and female fighting in the front yard.
As officers arrived, Baker told them “The (expletive) is in there. He has been beating up his woman all day,” the report said.
Officers spoke with Phillip Regal, 45, whose face was covered in blood. He also had injuries to his left cheek and lip and scratches on his back, the report said.
Regal told police Gunderman came to the home at 10:30 a.m. after working in Cleveland the night before, and an argument ensued over him watching her children all day and all night. He said that she punched him several times after he questioned her whereabouts.
He said she left and went to a friend’s house and returned intoxicated at 10 p.m. She then began “going crazy, breaking items in the residence and proceeded to strike and scratch him several more times while on the porch,” the report said.
Gunderman told police that she was choked and beat up by Regal, but two juveniles on scene backed up Regal’s account.
In the meantime, Baker began yelling obscenities at Regal, threatening to fight him and ignoring officers’ commands to stop, the report said. Despite officers’ orders she continued to curse at him and insist “you’re asking for it” and “you’re going to get yours,” the report said.
Both women were taken to the Lorain County Jail. On the way there, Baker made several comments that Regal “was going to get his and that he was going to be in a world of hurt when she gets out,” the report said.
Baker also offered an officer a sexual favor in order to get a personal summons, the report said, but later apologized for the proposition.
Gunderman was taken to the jail with no bond and Baker with $750 bond.
