Woman faces aggravated battery charge

Staff writer

Terry Tucker, 52, of Peabody was arrested Friday, at her home at 213 E. Division St. and charged with alleged aggravated battery and criminal damage to property.

The incident allegedly took place at the residence of Steven Holdren, 404 N. Elm St.

Peabody Police Chief Bruce Burke said there have been rumors in the community that Holdren was stabbed, but that was not the case.

“A conversation escalated and Holdren was cut with a serrated steak knife,” he said. “Police and an ambulance were called to the scene. Holdren gave police a statement, but refused transport for the cut.”

The charge of alleged criminal damage to property was related to a broken kitchen window. Tucker allegedly threw a coffee cup through the window, Burke said.

After police officers got a statement about the incident at Holdren’s residence, they went to Tucker’s house on Division St., found her at home, and arrested her, Burke said.

She was transported to Marion County Jail. She has since bonded out.
