Police: Naked woman assaulted two at apartment pool


AUSTIN (KXAN) – Police say a naked woman attacked two people at a North Austin apartment pool in late June. One woman was pushed and held under water, and another was hit with a rock, according to an arrest warrant filed Thursday.

Police say Morgan Areshchenko, 31, arrived nude at her apartment complex pool on North Hills Drive near MoPac. One woman already at the pool with her two children allegedly asked Areshchenko to put on some clothes. And that’s when Areshchenko allegedly responded by pushing the woman in the pool, jumping in after her, holding her head under water by her neck, and punching her.

Two onlookers, including an apartment complex employee, saw the incident and yelled at Areshchenko to stop, the arrest warrant states.

After dunking and punching the one woman, police said Areshchenko threw a 3- to 5-inch-wide stone at the employee who was running away from the scene to hide behind a barbecue pit, hitting her in the shoulder.

Authorities charged Areshchenko with aggravated assault, a second-degree felony.
