SALISBURY, Md. - A woman is facing more charges after police say she assaulted a woman at a park, in Salisbury, leading to her second arrest in two days.

The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office says on Sunday, a deputy responded to Billy Gene Jackson Park, where a woman was accused of hitting another woman in the face.

According to the report, a woman was attending an event at the park when she approached 23-year-old Jarenea Mitchell of Salisbury. Investigators say that the woman reported that she approached Mitchell, after she saw that Mitchell was involved in an altercation with other people.
