A 22-year-old Detroit woman may face charges after allegedly using a stun gun in an assault on a co-worker at JAC Products in Saline.

The Saline Police Department was dispatched to the plant at 225 S. Industrial Drive around 3:45 May 24.

The victim, a 21-year-old woman from Ypsilanti, told police she was walking in to work with a co-worker when another co-worker came up to them and stunned her with a stun gun. The woman said she was stunned three times. She threw punches to fight off the attack and eventually put the aggressor in a headlock.

The woman who walked in with the Ypsilanti woman corroborated this story.

The Detroit woman, staffed at JAC Product through Belflex Staffing, told police that she had been in a relationship with the Ypsilanti woman, who recently broke it off. She claimed the Ypsilanti woman had started to antagonize her and that she felt intimidated.

In contrast to the stories provided by the victim and a witness, the Detroit woman said the Ypsilanti woman started the altercation by hitting her. She said she used the stun gun when she realized the Ypsilanti woman was getting the better hand.

Police confiscated her stun gun.

A warrant request will be sent to the prosecutor’s office.
