NEWPORT NEWS, Va. (WAVY) - Police and medics responded to the Family YMCA in the 7800 bock of Warwick Boulevard around 7 p.m. Wednesday after a nude woman was reported on the facility's roof, according to Lou Thurston with the Newport News Police Department.
Officers found the 34-year-old woman threatening to jump off the roof, but a police supervisor was able to coax her away from the edge and off the roof.
Police learned that before she went onto the roof, the woman asked to go inside the YMCA for a drink of water. After she was allowed inside, she bit a 53-year-old female employee in the face and assaulted a 39-year-old woman and 9-year-old girl by touching them.
The woman was transported to a local hospital for medical and mental evaluation. The employee was also taken to a local hospital for treatment.
Thurston said the woman's identity will not be released until she is arrested.
