A Leesburg woman gave a man a black eye when she allegedly attacked him because he wasn’t trying to better their situation.

A Leesburg police officer was dispatched to that location when a witness called 911 early in the afternoon of Nov. 17 at the intersection of South 14th  Street and Sumter Street. The officer talked to the witness who said he saw a woman, later identified as 26-year-old China Jordan, arguing loudly with a man. The man turned and started walking away from Jordan who then attacked the man striking him several times in the head.

The officer spoke with the victim and observed that the man’s left eye was swelling up as he talked to the victim. He could not say how many times he had been hit but that he was hit in the head and face.

When the officer made contact with Jordan she admitted to striking the man with her fists. She was in a relationship with the man and she was upset with the man not trying to better their situation. She said that she,  “feels extremely violent when I see people not taking care of themselves.” She told the officer that they don’t have much and the victim isn’t trying to better their situation.

Jordan was placed under arrest for domestic battery and was transported to the Lake County Jail where bond was set at $1,000.
