An East Cocalico Township woman is facing charges for hitting her boyfriend with a dog leash, threatening an officer and defecating in a holding cell, according to police.

Annemarie Damico, 34, the first block of Deanne Circle, was arrested after police were called to her home around 3 p.m. Sunday. East Cocalico police said Damico’s live-in boyfriend sustained minor injuries after being hit with the leash.

As police investigated, they said Damico hit an officer with her cell phone, and also spit in her boyfriend’s face as she was escorted out of the residence.

While in custody, police said Damico threatened to shoot and kill an officer. In addition, she also defecated on the floor of her holding cell and threw feces around the cell area.

Police said the charges she faces include aggravated assault, aggravated harassment by prisoner, terroristic threats, resisting arrest and harassment.

It’s the second time since March that Damico has been arrested after a scuffle at her home. On March 31, she was charged with simple assault and harassment after a fight with her live-in boyfriend, police said.

Damico was taken to the Lancaster County Prison to be arraigned on the new charges.
