A Harrington woman was arrested Dec. 3 for allegedly hindering prosecution while police investigated an assault complaint.
Harrington Police responded to a report of an assault at Clarks Corner Apartments at approximately 8:20 p.m., where officers contacted a 19-year-old victim and 25-year-old Kimberly N. Wisseman, said department spokesman Lt. Earl Brode.
During an investigation, police determined the victim was at Wisseman’s residence when Wisseman’s boyfriend, who has not been identified, arrived and began hitting the victim with a baseball bat, Brode said.
The victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
During police interviews, Wisseman refused to cooperate or provide the identity of her boyfriend, Brode said.
Wisseman was taken into custody and transported to the Harrington Police Department for further questioning where she continued to be uncooperative with officers, leading to the charge of hindering prosecution, Brode said.
Wisseman was processed and arraigned via video phone at Justice of the Peace Court 7 and released on a $500 unsecured bond.
Police still are investigating the identity of the assault suspect.
