Louisville woman charged with assaulting man with candle holder

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say a Louisville woman assaulted a man after he asked her to return his car keys.

According to the arrest report, it happened just before 8 p.m. Monday at a home in the 4400 block of west Market Street. That's where police were after receiving a call advising them a woman was "breaking everything in the house" and that she had assaulted a man. When officers arrived, they found the victim bleeding profusely from the top of his head.

EMS crews determined that he had one or more lacerations on his head, apparently caused by several blows from a "metal candle holder that had extremely sharp edges."

The victim told police that 30-year-old Takiya S. Moore took his car keys "for unknown reasons." According to the victim, Moore kicked him and hit him with her fist when he asked her to return the keys. Then she allegedly picked up the candle holder and struck him several times on top of the head with it.

Police say several stitches were needed to close the wounds on victim's head.

Moore was arrested and charged with first degree assault.
