A Havre woman is out on bail facing felony charges in state District Court after a woman said she was beaten and robbed in a Havre motel.
The Hill County attorney charged Fidelia M. Antelope-Overberg, born in 1975, with two felony counts of assault with a weapon and felony counts of robbery and theft.
Antelope-Overberg was arrested the morning of July 17 after a woman reported the defendant had assaulted her and taken some $60-$80 in cash as well as the keys to the woman’s vehicle.
The woman, who called police at 8:17 a. m., reported that Antelope-Overberg had punched her, struck her in the face and on the head several times with a full can of soda, kicked her in the face, smothered her with a comforter when she called for help, and threatened her with a 9-inch knife.
Officers investigating the scene recorded evidence of bedding with bloodstains on them, a full can of soda with what appeared to be human hair attached to the pull tab and a 9-inch knife.
The officers observed that the woman’s temple was swollen that she had dried blood around her nostrils and swelling and bruising on her hands and arms.
The woman also complained of pain in her rib area, and emergency medical personnel were called to the scene to treat her.
The woman’s vehicle, a 1990s Oldsmobile Cutlass, was later stopped by a sheriff’s deputy on the 200 block of 2nd Street West. Antelope-Overberg, who was a passenger in the vehicle, was arrested.
Antelope-Overerg is scheduled to be arraigned Monday, Aug. 22.
