Two people were arrested on aggravated battery charges after Great Bend Police Department officers were dispatched to 2919 Gano St. at 12:45 a.m. Saturday.
The victim, Tracy Ellis, reported Nathan Clanton and Jessica Wiginton, both of Great Bend, attacked him at his residence. According to Lt. Scott Bieberle at the Great Bend Police Department, Ellis reported that Clanton attempted to stab him with a screwdriver and Wiginton attempted to hit him with a wooden ax handle.
Both suspects were booked into the Barton County Jail in lieu of $75,000 bond.
Wiginton was also charged with resisting arrest and theft. During her arrest, an officer reportedly recovered a security camera that had been stolen from the Travelodge, 3200 10th St.
Clanton was also booked for parole violation.
Wiginton had already spent part of the previous day in jail. She was arrested for disorderly conduct and battery of a law enforcement officer around 12:14 a.m. on Friday, after police responded to a report that she was standing in the roadway at 21st and Washington. She was released later that morning after posting a $1,000 surety bond.
