Police: Frankford woman assaults woman with screwdriver

1280 Tisher

FRANKFORD, Del. – A Frankford woman was arrested on Tuesday following an assault investigation.

At around 5:40 p.m., police responded to the 34000 block of Pin Oak Drive for a reported assault. It was learned that 47-year-old Tara Tisher and the 53-year-old female victim had gotten into a verbal argument inside the residence about a cell phone. The two females reportedly agreed that Tisher would give the victim the cell phone in the front porch area of the home.

Once on the porch, police say Tisher pulled out a screwdriver and cut the victims’ hand before pointing the screwdriver at her. The two then got into a physical altercation, and the victim was able to get the screwdriver away from Tisher, who fled the residence with the key to the victims’ vehicle before troopers arrived.

The victim sustained a minor injury in the incident.

On Wednesday, troopers responded to Tisher’s residence and took her into custody. She was charged with possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony, second degree assault, aggravated menacing, and theft under $1500.

Tisher was held at the Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution on a $77,000 cash bond.
