A Spencer woman is accused of striking her common-law husband with a hammer and hatchet and biting him during an argument, court papers show.

Pamela Yuvette Cary, 47, was arrested Thursday at a residence in the 2700 block of Paxton Place on a complaint of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon after her common-law husband told police she assaulted him, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Tony Wilson said Cary hit him on top of the head with a hammer, hit him on the left arm with the back of a hatchet and bit him on the right arm, police reported.

The woman told police she hit Wilson with the hammer in self-defense, after an argument between the two became physical, the affidavit states. Cary said Wilson scratched her on the chest, but when police asked him how she got the scratches he said they were “self-inflicted.”

Wilson was treated for his injuries, which included cuts on his head and above his left eye and a bump on his left arm, police reported.
