JASPER — A Huntingburg woman arrested for allegedly battering a male victim Wednesday night is alleged to have battered the man again Thursday after he picked her up at jail.
Breann B. Campbell, 37, of 200 E. Second Avenue, was originally arrested Wednesday by Huntingburg Police Department officers answering a 7:55 p.m. call from the male victim reporting a domestic battery.
Huntingburg officers and an Indiana State Police trooper arrived to find Campbell walking away from the residence. Police located her a few houses away and then spoke to the complainant who said a verbal argument culminated with Campbell slapping him in the right eye and hitting him with a belt on the back. The victim had marks on his body supporting his story, police said.
Campbell told police the victim had struck himself in the eye and she had not meant to strike him on the back.
At 2:15 p.m. Thursday, according to authorities, Campbell was released on her own recognizance and the victim of the Wednesday night battery drove her away from the Dubois County Security Center.
Campbell is alleged to have repeatedly struck the victim in the chest while they traveled in Jasper. The victim turned the vehicle around and drove back to the security center to contact law enforcement.
Authorities said Campbell fled on foot to the Riverwalk area where she was located and re-arrested on another battery charge by a Dubois County Sheriff’s Department deputy.
Campbell was re-booked into the security center at 3:40 p.m.
