An 18-year-old woman is accused of purposely striking a person with her vehicle and narrowly missing a second.

Demyia Whitson of Forest Park is held on two counts of felonious assault at the Hamilton County jail. She is scheduled to face a judge Monday.

According to her arrest record, Whitson followed a male victim to his girlfriend's house in the 6500 block of Montevista Drive just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday.

She exited her vehicle to confront the victims and got into a verbal altercation, her arrest slip states. It also alleges she took out a knife and cut two of the tires to the victim's vehicle.

That's when police say she got into her purple 1998 Chevrolet Malibu and "struck victim #2 with it. Arrested then backed up vehicle and tried to strike victim #1 with it, just missing him and striking his vehicle," police wrote in her arrest report.
