Police originally arrested a male for his alleged part in a domestic dispute, but have since discovered that the female was the primary aggressor. Officers are now looking to arrest Shante Jackson on felony charges.

Jackson, 25, was fighting with a 24-year-old male, police say. The responding officers arrived on the 1000 block of Palacio View and found that she had a cut on her lip and was describing being strangled by the man.

Detectives from the Domestic Violence Unit discovered, however, that Jackson had allegedly been the aggressor. They say she flattened the tires on a vehicle the couple shared and hit the man in the head with a frying pan when he tried to leave.

They also found no evidence that he had tried to strangle her.

The male was originally arrested, but was released without charges.

Officers are looking for Jackson and say they will arrest her for the felony charges of Second Degree Assault and Criminal Mischief.

No description of Jackson was provided.

Anyone with information should call 634-STOP.
