On Feb. 3, at 1:47 a.m., Marana police responded to a call in reference to assault. The victim told the officer she was traveling westbound on Orange Grove Road, approaching Thornydale Road, when another person passed her and cut her off. After passing the vehicle and coming to a stoplight, the driver of the other car exited her vehicle and started toward the victim’s vehicle. The victim rolled up her window in fear she would be harmed. The other driver began screaming at her, then punched the driver’s window. The victim, who said she would be able to identify the other driver, did not wish to press charges.
