Silver Lake battery incident results in arrest of two Rochester women

Two Rochester women are facing battery charges from a recent incident stemming in Silver Lake. 

According to court documents, Lindsey Beebout, 27, and Cierra McIntosh, 27, were each charged for involvement in a battery that was reported to the Kosciusko County Sheriff's Department just before 3 p.m. on March 2. A woman reported to officers that she was sitting around a campfire when the duo arrived in a vehicle to commit the violence. 

It was reported that the victim was knocked to the ground after being confronted by McIntosh and Beebout. Reports detailed that McIntosh repeatedly punched the woman, and had also stomped on her chest and shoulders while Beebout restrained her.

McIntosh and Beebout reportedly fled from the scene immediately following the attack. A witness at the scene corroborated the victim's version of events and described identical details to officers when questioned. 

Officers noticed multiple facial abrasions, along with a swollen bump on the victim's head. 

McIntosh and Beebout were booked into the Kosciusko County Jail on March 22.  Charges include battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, a Level 6 felony; and battery resulting in bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor.
