A Winchester woman faces multiple charges, including assault, after being arrested in connection with an incident at a local gas station last month.

According to the arrest citation, Katrina Caudill, 47, was arrested on Friday, Oct. 27., after allegedly injuring a woman on Oct. 10 in a dispute over a former boyfriend at the Speedway gas station located at the intersection of Lexington Ave. and Bypass Rd.

Winchester police spoke with the woman two days later on Oct. 12. The woman told police that Caudill came over to her car as she was talking with her daughter, pulled the gas hose out, threw it on the ground, came over to the driver’s side door and assaulted her. Caudill then allegedly dug her fingernails into the woman’s face, causing injuries to her face and neck. The woman said she wasn’t trying to start a fight or get in trouble.

Two weeks into the investigation, on Oct. 25, police spoke to Speedway management about the incident.

According to the arrest citation, while watching surveillance footage, police observed Caudill in an SUV parked closest to the gas station facing eastbound and also observed the other party in an SUV parked furthest away from the building.

While both women were at a gas pump, Caudill is alleged to have been seen walking over to the other woman and then assaulting her as she sat in her car.

Based on the information from the investigation, charges were filed against Caudill in connection with the Oct. 10 incident.

On Oct. 27, police responded to a home address in reference to executing the warrant for Caudill’s arrest. Once on scene, contact was made with Caudill, who was sitting in the driver’s seat of an SUV in the driveway.

According to the arrest citation, police stated that they could smell the odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle, and Caudill allegedly told them that she smoked inside the vehicle earlier in the day.

Upon further investigation, police found a clear baggie with a white, crystal-like substance consistent with meth and a red baggie with a white, crystal-like substance resembling the drug, and a scale with a white residue consistent with meth was also found on top of the center the SUV’s console.

Caudill was then taken into custody and was charged with one count of 4th-degree assault and a count of possession of a controlled substance.

She is currently lodged at the Clark County Detention Center with a $1,000 bond for both offenses.
