A Bogart woman was arrested early Saturday morning for allegedly breaking into a man’s home in west Athens and attacking him with a knife, Athens-Clarke County police said.

After breaking into the house on Alpine Way at bout 5 a.m., 40-year-old Jessica Danielle Rogue got into an altercation with the 48-year-old male resident, police said.

Rogue reportedly damaged electronics, musical instruments and walls in the residence, according to police.

At one point she grabbed a knife from the kitchen and attacked the victim, police said.

The victim ran from the residence and called police, who arrested Rogue at the scene.

“The victim did not have serious injuries and was not transported by EMS,” police Public Information Officer Geof Gilland said.

A police incident report did not note the relationship that Rogue had with the victim, except to say they had a history of family violence.

Rogue was charged with first-degree burglary, aggravated assault, family violence battery, and second-degree criminal damage to property.

The Malcom Bridge Road resident was denied bail during a Sunday bond hearing, according to the Clarke County Sheriff’s Office.
