Bellmead, Tx (FOX44) – Bellmead Police report a 47-year-old woman is charged with assault and with threatening a “bloodbath” while displaying a knife at a local motel.

Dorothy Jean Isabel remained in the McLennan County Jail on Wednesday – on a second-degree felony charge of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.

An arrest affidavit stated that Bellmead patrol officers responded to the Delta Inn at 1320 Behrens Circle on Sunday regarding a report of an assault. The victim told officers that he and his girlfriend got into an argument, with the woman accused of smashing him the face and biting him.
