By The Chronicle

A Chehalis woman was arrested Tuesday after allegedly hitting a man in the head with a glass pipe, causing a cut to his scalp and a “substantial laceration” to his left ear, according to court documents. 

Danielle M. Toft, 24, was charged Wednesday afternoon in Lewis County Superior Court with one count of second-degree assault. 

Superior Court Judge Andrew Toynbee imposed $15,000 bail for Toft, who has no prior criminal history. Her next hearing is scheduled for Dec. 28. 

According to court documents, at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, deputies from the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office responded to Providence Centralia Hospital following a report of an assault earlier in the 1000 block of state Route 508 in Chehalis. 

A 34-year-old man reported Toft hit him in the head near the bathroom in her house, according to court documents. 

Deputies contacted Toft, who reported the man strangled her after an argument and that she grabbed a glass pipe and hit him over the head to defend herself. 

According to court documents, deputies did not observe any injuries to back up Toft’s statement. Deputies recovered a broken glass pipe from the residence.
