A local woman told police early Tuesday that even though her male roommate had assaulted her, she had assured him she would pray for him.

Police responded about 6:30 a.m. to a residence located in the 400 block of Wolverton Street. The woman said her roommate “got mad at her because she talked too much.” The victim said the suspect hit her in the face, but before he fled the residence she told him she wished “no bad evil” on him and would pray for him.

The victim was not seriously injured. However, po­lice reports indicate the woman could not give officers any personal information about her roommate and the suspect was not located.
