Beatrice police arrested a woman for domestic assault following a disturbance reported in the 1400 block of North 11th Street.

The disturbance was reported shortly after 11 p.m. on Tuesday. A female, later identified as 27-year-old Ashley O'Keefe, could be heard yelling inside the house and a man outside said she was assaulting another man.

Gage County Court documents state a man who was allegedly assaulted came out of the residence and had blood all over his lips. He told police he was missing part of a tooth.

O'Keefe came outside, and continued yelling.

After multiple attempts to calm her down, court documents state she wanted the officer to leave and no longer wanted the victim removed from the residence. The victim then reported he wanted nothing done about his injury.

Less than 30 minutes later, dispatch received a 911 hangup from the same residence.

Upon the officers' arrival, O'Keefe said the three men had all assaulted her, and police observed a pushing match between her and one of the men at the front door.

Officers attempted to put her in handcuffs to prevent further assaults, and she kicked one of the men.

O’Keefe’s bond was set at $3,000, with a 10 percent deposit in Gage County Court. Her next hearing is set for Jan. 16.
