PLAINVILLE - A Hartford woman is facing felony charges after allegedly taking a baseball bat to a Plainville man’s head earlier this week.

Emily Echevarria, 28, allegedly used a bat to smash the victim’s car windows outside his home around 3:30 a.m. Monday, and when the man, her former boyfriend, came outside to confront her, she used the same bat to strike him twice in the head, according to the police report. Police described the injury and the action as “splitting his head open,” but a formal diagnosis was not included in the four-page report.

The victim, who has not been identified, declined medical treatment at the scene, but later went to the UConn Health Center in Farmington. His condition is unclear. While at the hospital, the man played a voice mail for police, which he said was left by Echevarria, in which a woman told him she had a “baseball bat with (his) name on it,” the report said.

Echevarria was arrested after she was seen running on East Street shortly after police were called Monday. She was apprehended in the area of Whiting Street and faces charges of second-degree assault, first-degree criminal mischief, first-degree reckless endangerment and second-degree breach of peace.

According to the report, Echevarria told police the victim had assaulted her three weeks ago in Hartford, breaking her nose, and that that’s why she “did what she did.” She is being held on $150,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on June 6.
