Woman arrested in Braddock for attacking father of her child with pepper spray and a knife

A 25-year-old Prince George’s County woman was arrested on May 18 for allegedly attacking the father of her child with pepper spray and a knife in the Braddock area of Old Town.

Mishawanda Blount was arrested and released on a personal recognizance bond after the incident in the 800 block of N. Patrick Street. She was charged with domestic assault and battery, attempted injury by caustic substance and destruction of property.

The home is located on Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority property, and police found video footage supporting the victim’s claims that he was attacked by Blount and that she also damaged his car.

Police ended up contacting Blount by getting her phone number from the victim.

“Despite physical evidence and video footage, Ms. Blount denied committing the offense and being in the state of Virginia at the time of the offense,” according to a search warrant affidavit.
