COOS BAY — A woman was arrested Thursday, Feb. 1, on a domestic harassment charge after responding to a report of an altercation between a mother and daughter.

According to a Coos County Sheriff's Office press release, at about 5:34 p.m. deputies were dispatched to 63000 block of Wildahl Road in Coos Bay. Deputies were advised of a dispute at that location between a mother and daughter. The initial deputy found the victim sitting in a car with her hazard lights on away from the residence.

After interviewing both the victim and her mother, Leisha Tillett, 40, of Coos Bay, it was determined they had got into a verbal altercation which then turned physical. Leisha ultimately pushed the juvenile and a fight ensued. The juvenile received scratches to her left eye, which had burst a blood vessel.

The juvenile was relocated to other family in a safety plan and Leisha was arrested for Domestic Harassment. Bail was set at $5,000. Tillet posted bail and is awaiting her court appearance.
