ST. ANN • A St. Ann man was charged today with assaulting a woman with a claw hammer in what police believe was a fight over drugs.
Dale P. Dixon, 50, of the 3500 block of Wright Avenue, struck a woman, 32, in the head with a claw hammer about midnight Thursday after she began fighting with another woman in a home in the 3900 block of Wright Avenue, said Aaron Jimenez, public information officer for St. Ann police.
Dixon has been charged with first-degree assault and armed criminal action. He is jailed in lieu of a $100,000 cash bail.
The fight started as the female victim was getting a tattoo on her shoulder to memorialize a friend who died recently of a drug overdose, Jimenez said. As a man inked the tattoo, the woman and Dixon's girlfriend, 37, started fighting.
Dixon grabbed a claw hammer from a workbench in the house, Jimenez said, and first struck a man was trying to break up the fight. He was not seriously hurt.
Dixon then struck the 32-year-old woman in the head once with the claw side of the hammer, causing severe bleeding, Jimenez said.
The wounded woman ran out to her car and fled down Wright Avenue toward St. Charles Rock Road, where a St. Ann police officer spotted the car and tried to pull it over for speeding, Jimenez said. The driver continued on to the St. Ann Police Department nearby for help.
From there, she was taken to a hospital for emergency surgery for skull fractures and brain swelling. She is expected to survive.
Back at the home, police seized paraphernalia for making and using methamphetamine. No one else in the home was arrested.
