[ARCHIVED] Woman Suspected of Using Large Rock to Strike Neighbor

Jessica Lee Griewahn

A woman suspected of hurling a rock that struck a neighbor’s head, causing serious injury, has been arrested and charged with a felony.

Jessica Lee Griewahn, 26, of the 1700 block of Calle Fielder, is charged with a third-degree felony count of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Police learned the victim, a woman, suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of the incident.

Investigators learned on Nov. 13, the victim returned to her residence where she observed her mother and Griewahn involved in an argument just outside the home. The victim told investigators that she and Griewahn exchanged words and began physically fighting each other before witnesses separated them.

Investigators believe Griewahn then retrieved a large rock, or a large piece of cinderblock, and threw it at the victim. The rock struck the victim’s forehead causing her to fall to the ground. The injury caused the victim to temporarily lose her vision.

The victim was transported to Mountainview Regional Medical Center and then to University Medical Center of El Paso for treatment of a traumatic head or brain injury. The victim was released from the hospital earlier this week.

Griewahn was arrested on a warrant Tuesday evening and booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center where she’s initially being held without bond.
