The Summerville Police Dept. is investigating an alleged incident of assault that occurred earlier this month.

On Sept. 3 shortly after midnight, city police met with a Summerville woman at the county sheriff’s office who had suffered several visible marks on her head and shoulder. She claimed she had been attacked on Vine St. by a woman. When city police spoke to the alleged assailant, she denied being involved, saying that the woman had, “fallen out of her car”.

The incident was handed over to the SPD’s investigations division.
