Oklahoma City police arrest a woman early Wednesday morning after she allegedly assaulted her pregnant roommate with a hammer.

According to a police report, Abigail Easton, 27, hit her roommate following an argument over noise. It happened around 3 a.m. Wednesday, May 1, at 2437 S.W. 32nd Street in Oklahoma City.

The victim, who is six-months pregnant, told police she had to be in court in the morning and that Easton was being loud. The victim said she confronted Easton and two got into a verbal argument when Easton hit her in the eye with a hammer.
