Littleton Police Arrest Woman on Assault Charges
*This release has been updated to reflect current charges against the defendant*
LITTLETON — Chief Matthew Pinard reports that the Littleton Police Department arrested a woman on assault charges following an altercation yesterday evening.
ASIA DOTTEN-JILES, AGE 22, OF NEWTON was arrested and charged with Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon (Two Counts).
In addition, DOTTEN-JILES was previously wanted on a warrant out of Quincy District Court on a charge of Resisting Arrest and a warrant out of Boston District Court on a charge of Assault and Battery with a Dangerous Weapon.
On Wednesday, July 10, at approximately 6 p.m., Littleton Police were dispatched to 26 Green Needles Road for a report of an assault.
Upon arrival, police determined that DOTTEN-JILES had confronted the victim and neighbors and made verbal threats after the female victim, who was visiting a resident of the cottage behind 26 Green Needles Road, had gone to visit another nearby home for dinner. Following the dinner, the victim left the home to return to the cottage and was again confronted by DOTTEN-JILES, who was carrying a hammer and spray bottle containing bleach.
DOTTEN-JILES threw the hammer at the victim, striking her in the shoulder and head, before spraying bleach at her. The victim, who was carrying a can of pepper spray, used it on DOTTEN-JILES, causing her to retreat to 26 Green Needles Road. Police located her inside that residence and learned that she had showered and decontaminated herself from the pepper spray.
As a result of the investigation, DOTTEN-JILES was taken into custody. She was held on $25,000 bail pending her arraignment this morning in Ayer District Court.
The victim sustained minor injuries and was transported to Nashoba Valley Medical Center for evaluation.
These are allegations. All suspects are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
