MEDINA — A West Salem woman who cut a man with a knife during a physical altercation in August was sentenced to three years of probation Monday in Medina County Common Pleas Court.

Dustin Wetmore, 27, pleaded guilty in October to aggravated assault, a fourth-degree felony.

An original charge of felonious assault, a second-degree felony, was reduced as part of a plea deal.

On Aug. 4, a 29-year-old West Salem man reported he was assaulted by Wetmore at a Lodi residence in the 300 block of Wooster Street, according to a police report.

The man told police the two started fighting because he let Wetmore “sleep in too long and apparently ruined her day.” He said Wetmore was kicking, punching and biting him while he was trying to collect his belongings.

Police observed a wound on the man’s elbow and neck and a cut on his wrist.

Wetmore told police she opened her Kershaw knife when the man “came at her” and cut his wrist.
