Deputies Jailed Selma Woman for Assaulting Brother in Argument over Car

The Josephine County Sheriff's Office jailed a Selma woman for allegedly assaulting her brother during an argument over a vehicle late last week.

The Sheriff's Office reports deputies arrested the 74-year-old woman for the incident that occurred in the 200-block of Borica Drive last Friday evening.

Deputies said the victim's daughter called 9-1-1 on Wednesday to report that her father was in the hospital and not doing well. They said he texted his daughter on Saturday and said he was being treated for a fall. She visited him on Monday and he told her his sister had pushed him down during an argument over a vehicle.

According to the report, the siblings live together on the Illinois Valley property and the sister forced her brother to tell people he was injured in a fall. When the daughter went to the home to collect some things for her father, her aunt was uncooperative and would not let her take the vehicle.

Following an investigation, deputies placed the woman into custody and lodged her at the Josephine County Jail for Felony 2nd-Degree Assault. She was being held without bail.
