A Bledsoe woman is facing a burglary charge after allegedly entering a home and assaulting a woman.

According to the arrest warrant, Brock entered a woman’s home on Aug. 19, 2013 with the intent to commit a crime. Brock entered the woman’s home and assaulted her. The warrant states Brock is to have no contact with the woman and is to remain off the property.

In other police activity:

• Timothy Coffman, 34, of Pineville, was arrested on Sunday after Bell County Sheriff’s Office deputies and officers from the Pineville City Police Department responded to a call of a man assaulting several residents in the Page community.

According to a press release, at 1:31 a.m. on Sunday, police received a call of a man assaulting several people at a residence on Highway 1534 in the Page community. Bell County Sheriff’s Deputy Joel Quillen and Pineville Police Officer Jason Williams responded to the scene where they were told Coffman attempted to sexually assault a female at the home and had also fought with two individuals who had tried to stop the alleged sexual attack. The officers believed Coffman to be under the influence of an unknown intoxicant as he was hallucinating and speaking incoherently.

The release states officers attempted to place Coffman in custody and handcuff him, but he fought with them. Officers say tasers were unsuccessfully deployed against Coffman as well as pepper spray. K9 Jax was deployed and bit Coffman with no effect. Coffman reportedly kicked the animal in the head. The two men who had been fighting with Coffman prior to the call assisted the officers in restraining Coffman to take him into custody. One of the men was later taken to Pineville Community Hospital for a broken nose. Coffman was transported by Bell County EMS to Pineville Community Hospital for treatment.
