FELLSMERE, Fla. -- Fellsmere police say a woman began throwing items from the yard at a man because he declined to have sex with her.

Officers arrived to the home at 56 S. Elm Street to investigate a report of a physical disturbance with medical treatment required.

On the scene, officers learned that the victim and her male companion were changing a tire in the driveway when Amber Baldwin began throwing items that she found lying in the yard at the man.

The man told police that Baldwin was throwing items at him because he declined to have sex with her earlier when she propositioned him.

Baldwin allegedly stopped throwing things at the man and went into the house.

The victim says when she and her male companion were done changing the tire, they entered the house as well.

Once they entered, the victim alleges that Baldwin threw a glass ashtray at them, striking the victim on the top of the head.  The woman required medical treatment for her injuries.

Another witness arrived on scene and told police she observed Baldwin pulling the victim's hair and characterized what she saw as "an all out altercation."

The homeowner declined to be interviewed by police.

Baldwin was arrested for misdemeanor battery, transported to the hospital for her injuries, then to the Indian River County Jail.
