Officers responded and located the victim who was suffering from serious lacerations to her face. The victim was transported to a St. Louis regional hospital for treatment.
"The victim, who was identified as a household member of Alexis Broyles, told officers that Broyles struck her with a household lamp, which caused the injuries to her face. Officers attempted to locate Broyles but were unable to locate her. A search warrant was obtained and executed on the home, but at this point, Broyles has not been taken into custody on the warrant. Broyles’ bond was set at $75,000 by the Honorable Judge Janet Heflin."
