SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash.--A resident in the Spokane Valley called 911 on Monday and said someone had thrown a large rock through their bedroom window. The woman said the rock struck her husband in the head.
A Spokane Valley Sheriff’s deputy said the victim came outside the home in the 1200 block of North Felts Road and saw the man was bleeding from his forehead and had glass on his shirt.
The victim said he, his wife and their 3-year-old son were lying on the bed when he thought the house was falling down. The victim said he felt something heavy hit him in the head and then realized someone had thrown a cantaloupe size rock through the bedroom window.
The deputy noticed fabric stuck to the rock. He looked at the neighbor’s house and saw a similar type of fabric next to the house. The deputy contacted the adult female homeowner who accused the victim’s friends of spying on her. The victims were visiting from Florida.
Sarah Bear was booked into jail on the felony charge of second degree assault. The 6.66 pound rock was placed on property as evidence.
Bear made her first appearance in court on Tuesday afternoon.
"It could have turned out much worse than it did. You had a husband and a wife and their three year old son visiting here from Florida, lying in their buddies bed and then next thing they know, a six and half pound rock comes flying through their window and hits the husband right in the head,” said Deputy Craig Chamberlin with the Spokane County Sheriff’s Office.
The judge decided to release Bear Tuesday afternoon due to her lack of a criminal record.
