ROCKY RIVER, Ohio – Authorities have issued an arrest warrant against a 28-year-old Cleveland woman accused of assaulting a woman with a knife and trying to run her over in the parking lot of a senior citizen residence.
Chadea Garner is wanted on an aggravated, threatening charge filed in the Rocky River Municipal Court on Monday. The court issued the victim a temporary protection order against Garner on Wednesday.
The incident occurred around 8 p.m. on Jan. 20 in front of the Normandy senior who lives on Lake Road near Pond Drive, said Rocky River police chief George Lichman.
The woman told police she was walking to her car with a colleague when a woman who was later identified as Garner jumped out of her car and started chasing the woman with a knife, Lichman said.
Garner then got in her car and drove up to the woman and tried to hit her before she left the scene, he said.
Investigators learned the women had a previous relationship and haven’t spoken since December, Lichman said.
