Milford police have arrested a local woman after she allegedly hit a man several times.

The incident took place at 5:45 a.m. Aug. 23, in a parking lot in the 900 block of N. Dupont Boulevard, department spokesman Sgt. Robert Masten said.

Police went to the area to follow up on a report of a fight between a man and a woman Masten identified as 38-year-old Dawn Spells.

Spells allegedly fought officers, yelling and using offensive language, as they tried to take her into custody, Masten said.

Spells eventually was taken into custody; police charged her with offensive touching and disorderly conduct.

She was ordered held at the Sussex Correctional Institution on a $400 secured bond.
