CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - An Avondale woman is behind bars after police say she attacked another woman with a baseball bat.

Kara Robertson, 34, is charged with one count of felonious assault.

Police say Robertson and three other women were involved in a fight with three women on Sept. 1. Robertson allegedly grabbed a baseball bat and began to swing it at one of the women, causing her serious physical harm. According to court records, the victim suffered a laceration to the head that required five staples, a stab to the back that required three stitches, a stab to the left arm, a bite mark on her shoulder and scratches to her left eye.

Robertson admitted to police that she had the bat and swung it at the victim.

Hamilton County court records do not indicate that any other of the women involved are facing charges.

Robertson was arrested on Monday and was arraigned Tuesday morning, where her bond was set at $50,000.
