A woman was arrested in Napa on Sunday after she allegedly struck the father of her child several times with a hammer, according to police.

A witness contacted police around 11:40 a.m. to report seeing a woman hitting a man with a hammer and then fleeing, police said.

The suspect, Monique Joy Lalonde, 31, was located at her home in the 1200 block of Spruce Street.

Police said she initially told officers that she had been at the scene of the attack, but denied hitting the victim.

She was arrested after investigators determined she had allegedly struck the man multiple times in the face and leg, causing visible injuries, according to police.

Lalonde and the victim have a child together, police said.

Lol, really ladies? I don't find this funny in the slightest...

There is nothing humorous about this incident. I see the mention that the perpetrator and the victim have a child together, and regardless of the circumstances the child is likely the most significant victim here. There is little information here, but one clear lesson here is to be careful in your choice of who to be a parent with.

No one here is saying, "lol, oh my god that's hilarious!" It's more of a laugh of the disbelief of the kinda crime cases that are happening in Napa lately
