TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — A Tallahassee woman is behind bars after police say she attacked a man and tried to run him over, before ramming into his car when she missed.

According to court documents, a victim contacted 911 and reported that he had been injured during an argument with a woman back in March. The victim told the dispatcher that 22-year-old Clineisha Allen attempted to hit him with her vehicle and crashed into his car.

Documents say Tallahassee Police responded to the scene and immediately began speaking with the victim.

The victim told officers that he and Allen were at his apartment when the argument happened. At some point during the argument, Allen decided she would leave. Officers say a few minutes after leaving, Allen returned to the apartment claiming she had forgotten one of her belongings.

When Allen approached the entrance of the apartment, she reached for a mop that was outside. The victim told officers that he was afraid she was going to hit him with it so he took it from her.

Documents say Allen then began punching the victim in the face with her car keys. She then entered the apartment and threw the victim's belongings around and bit him on his arms.

Allen also stole the victim's watch from his dresser then left the apartment. Officers say Allen then drove her vehicle where the victim was standing and attempted to hit him. Fortunately, the victim was able to move out the way quick enough not to get hit.

After failing to hit the victim, Allen crashed into the victim's parked car before leaving the scene.

During the investigation, officers said the injuries on the victim's face would result in permanent scarring and that the stolen watch was worth $500. After speaking with the victim officers spent weeks trying to locate and interview Allen about the incident.

According to documents, Allen was arrested and transported to the Leon County Detention Facility on Tuesday. She is being charged with aggravated battery and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
