WINCHESTER — A Frederick County woman was arrested after allegedly strangling another woman during a Wednesday night fight.

Brooke Wilson, 24, of the 100 block of West Virginia Parkway, was charged with strangulation and misdemeanor assault and is being held on a $5,000 secured bond at the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center.

On Wednesday night, a Frederick County Sheriff’s Office deputy responded to an alleged assault in the 600 block of Fort Collier Road.

Upon arrival, the deputy saw male and female victims with injuries to the head and neck, according to a complaint filed in Frederick County General District Court on Thursday.

The female victim stated that Wilson, along with a male by the nickname “Turtle,” came onto their property, yelling at them about their house. No other information on Turtle’s identity was listed in the complaint.

Multiple witnesses stated that Wilson grabbed the female victim by her neck and “choke slammed” her to the ground, according to the complaint. The victim had scratch marks on her neck.

Witnesses stated that Turtle then struck the female victim in the mouth, according to the complaint.

The male victim asked Turtle why he hit a woman. Turtle then allegedly flicked a cigarette butt in the man’s face and struck him in the head with his fist.

The male victim attempted to defend himself, but Turtle allegedly knocked him to the ground and continued to strike him in the face with his fist, while Wilson allegedly continued to punch the woman.

Several witnesses told the deputy that Turtle had the male victim in a choke hold, which made him begin to lose consciousness and gurgle blood out his mouth.

The male victim was transported to the emergency room for his injuries, which are unknown.

Wilson has previously been arrested for shoplifting, domestic assault and battery, and resisting arrest, according to the complaint.

According to court documents, after her arrest, Wilson continued to make comments about “going after” the female victim and “taking her out into the woods.”

Wilson’s next court date is Oct. 15.

It’s not known if Turtle has been charged.
