Earlier that morning the woman received a piece of mail with no return address. She recognized the handwriting to be that of a man who she had taken out a protection against.

Police attempted to reach the man but calls to listed numbers weren’t answered.

The victim said he had never seen the suspect before and had no idea what provoked the attack.

The mother told her daughter she didn’t want to hear any more from the daughter and to go to her room. The daughter refused, and said to her mother, “make me.”

The mother said she then wrestled with the daughter before grabbing her by the back of the neck in an attempt to force her to her room. She let go and grabbed a container of cottage cheese and threw it all over the house.

The mother told police she knew her actions were wrong. She was arrested and taken to Kitsap County Jail for assault and given a court date.
