Woman allegedly attacked outside home

A verbal dispute turned violent recently, when one local woman allegedly attacked another outside of her own home. According to police, the victim was attacked inside her car just after she pulled into her apartment complex.

Her alleged attacker, Nicholette A. Probst, 22, of 201 Seneca Drive in Salladasburg, has been charged with simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

Probst and Laura Fisher had been in a week-long dispute over a male friend, records state. Probst had allegedly sent Fisher numerous text messages, an apparently went to Fisher’s home on May 2 with the intention of confronting her.

Fisher saw Probst’s vehicle pulling out of her apartment complex’s parking lot, just as Fisher herself was pulling in.

Probst allegedly turned her vehicle around and followed Fisher to her parking space. Witnesses reported that Fisher was attacked by Probst before she even had a chance to get out of her vehicle.

Fisher managed to exit her vehicle, but Probst allegedly grabbed her again. Probst allegedly slammed Fisher’s head off of her own vehicle and then kicked the woman after she fell on the ground, records state.

Both a neighbor and Derek Puzak, Fisher’s passenger, were able to verify what took place, police wrote in the affidavit.

Authorities took note of Fisher’s various injuries to her back, arms and face. In the affidavit, police wrote that she also was bleeding from a cut on her knee.

Probst admitted that she was upset with Fisher and had gone to talk with her that day. She described their interaction as “a scuffle,” records state. However, Probst allegedly ended her interview with police after they mentioned that witnesses had reported the alleged fight.

Probst waived her preliminary hearing before District Judge Jerry C. Lepley on June 19. She is currently out on $5,000 bail.
