A Muscatine woman was arrested Sunday after she allegedly assaulted three people at a trailer park.

Nora Lissett Medrano, 34, was charged June 26 with public intoxication, assault causing injury, and two accounts of assault with a weapon.

According to a complaint from the Johnson County Sheriff’s Office, deputies arrived at the Apache Trail Regency Trailer Park around 3:15 a.m. Upon speaking with three alleged victims — two females and one male — deputies reportedly learned Medrano had initially assaulted a man and a woman who were sitting on their trailer porch, reports said.

Complaints said Medrano approached the alleged victims wielding two glass bottles, yelling expletives and making threats. She allegedly used the bottles to strike the woman’s head twice and hit the man in the mouth, cutting his lip.

A witness who saw the fight approached the scene and was punched in the face by Medrano, lacerating her lip, deputies said.

Reports said deputies apprehended an unresponsive Medrano and discovered she had a preliminary breath test reading of 0.168. She was transported to the UIHC emergency room.
