Charges dropped in felony assault case
Charges have been dismissed against a 26-year-old Alexandria woman in an assault case.
Quashieka Nicole Cook was charged in Douglas County District Court March 7 with felony second-degree assault and misdemeanor domestic assault in connection with an incident that occurred on March 5.
The Alexandria Police Department responded to a report of a domestic disturbance on 34th Avenue East. The alleged victim of the assault called a relative to report that he had been stabbed by his wife, Cook.
The relative contacted law enforcement and police were able to gain entry into the residence and provide aid to the victim, who was treated and released from Douglas County Hospital.
A jury trial was scheduled to take place this June but the Douglas County Attorney's Office decided to drop the charges after the alleged victim didn't cooperate with authorities in prosecuting the case, according to the attorney's office.
