A woman was arrested at 1:15 p.m. Tuesday near College Street for allegedly stalking and breaking into a man’s house and fighting with him, according to a Hopkinsville Police Department report.

The report states the victim contacted police earlier that day in regard to Jessica R. Young, 37, Hopkinsville, coming to his home and threatening him. Officers were dispatched to the home, but Young had already left the area.

A second call from the victim was made around 1 p.m., and officers arrived at the home to find the victim short of breath and his living room in shambles.

The victim told police he was cleaning his home when Young came in unannounced and uninvited. While she was in the kitchen, Young allegedly grabbed a knife and threatened him with it before a scuffle began.

During the scuffle, Young reportedly bit the victim on the arm and breast causing minor injury.

Young fled the scene prior to police arrival and was found two blocks away shortly after, the report stated.

Young was under the influence and this behavior has been ongoing, according to the report, and Young has pleaded guilty to two separate misdemeanors involving similar behavior with the same victim in the last six months, the report added.

Young was arrested and charged with alcohol intoxication in a public place, second-degree burglary and first-degree stalking.
