A woman is accused of beating another person with a dog leash, and later threatening the person with a knife.

Police say the victim was able to disarm Howell and, eventually, hid in the bathroom and called 911.

Howell is charged with assault, menacing, and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.
