Assault case against Bemidji woman dismissed
BEMIDJI—The case against a Bemidji woman accused of hitting another woman in the face with a glass bottle was dismissed Friday after the Beltrami County Attorney's Office was unable to locate the alleged victim and a witness.
Onawa Dunn, 41, of Bemidji, pleaded not guilty to the charge of second-degree assault in August. Her trial was set to begin Monday, but was canceled after the case's dismissal.
Dunn was arrested July 9 after police received a report of an assault near the old Pamida Building in downtown Bemidji. Upon their arrival they located a woman with a swollen left cheek and lip and blood around her nose, according to a complaint against Dunn.
