The Marin County Sheriff’s Department discovered 700 marijuana plants in Inverness Park Monday while investigating a report of a woman who beat her sleeping roommate with a baseball bat that morning.
Deputies responded around 7:30 a.m. to what was reported as an attempted murder at 11 Redwood Ave., Lt. Doug Pittman said.
One of three roommates living on the property, later identified as 27-year-old Kelsey Winterkorn, assaulted another roommate in the head with the bat while he was sleeping, Pittman said.
The wounded man sought help from his other roommate who drove him to a hospital, Pittman said.
On the way to the hospital, the suspect chased the victim and other roommate in her orange-colored van on Sir Francis Drake Boulevard through Inverness Park, ramming her van twice into the victim's car before fleeing, Pittman said.
The two roommates arrived at the hospital where the victim was treated for his injuries, Pittman said.
Sheriff's deputies found approximately 700 marijuana plants inside two buildings on the property, and an investigation was under way Monday to determine a cause for the attack, Pittman said.
Winterkorn, who was wanted for attempted murder after Monday’s attack, was described as being 5-feet-9-inches tall, about 135 pounds, and having a multi-colored Mohawk and hazel eyes
Investigators said she was last seen driving a bright orange van nicknamed the “Biohazard Battlecruiser, and that she may have a gun and should be considered dangerous
Anyone with information on her whereabouts was asked to contact the authorities.
