Woman charged with malicious wounding

Pamela Joy Fox

WOODSTOCK – A Shenandoah County grand jury Wednesday indicted an Edinburg woman on a charge of malicious wounding in an incident that left the victim with a broken nose and a bruised face.

The defendant, Pamela Joy Fox, 50, was arrested Jan. 14 at the site of the incident in the 100 block of Lamberts Villa in Edinburg.

Maj. Scott Proctor of the Shenandoah County Sheriff’s Office said deputies arrested Fox after they were called to the scene around 9:15 p.m.

“The deputy arrived and spoke to the victim who received an injury to the nose and facial area (and) was dripping blood profusely,” Proctor said.

Proctor said an ambulance was sent to the scene, and the victim, a 60-year-old woman, was taken to Shenandoah Memorial Hospital where she was treated for a broken nose.

Proctor said deputies were told that Fox “allegedly struck the female in the face with a glass jar after some type of confrontation” at one of the residences in the mobile home park.

An ambulance crew also treated Fox for an injury at the scene, but she was not transported, Proctor said.

Proctor said Fox was taken into custody without incident and transported to Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail. He said an emergency protective order was also issued against Fox.

The case was initially heard in Shenandoah County General District Court and certified to the grand jury in March. Information on Fox’s bond status was unavailable late Wednesday afternoon.
