A woman who allegedly heaved a cantaloupe-sized rock through a neighbor’s window was arrested early Monday on assault charges.

A Spokane County sheriff’s deputy responded to an assault call at the 1200 block of North Felts Road at about 9 a.m. Monday. A woman called to report someone had thrown a large rock through the bedroom window, striking her husband in the head. The victim was bleeding from his forehead and had glass on his shirt.

The woman, her husband and their 3-year-old son were all visiting from Florida and were lying on the bed in the guest bedroom.

The rock, which weighed 6.66 pounds, had a piece of fabric stuck to it. The deputy looked at the neighbor’s house and saw a similar type of fabric nearby. The deputy contacted the female homeowner inside, who accused the victim’s friends of spying on her.

The adult female was booked into jail on suspicion of second-degree assault, a felony. Her name was not released.
