Katelyn Anne Loveless appeared in District Court Thursday and pleaded not guilty to felony charges of criminal mischief and partner or family member assault.

Police arrested Loveless on Saturday after responding to a disturbance in the 4500 block of Toyon Drive, according to charging documents.

Loveless, who had a bloody hand, right shoulder and chest, answered the door of a residence there and a let police inside the home.

Officers reported seeing extensive damage inside the residence, including broken cabinet doors, hallway doors, screens, chairs and glass items.

Loveless reported getting in an argument with a significant other and then having too much to drink and breaking things, court records say.

Officers found Loveless’ girlfriend down the street, hiding with a hammer in hand.

The woman reported that Loveless had gotten upset during an argument and grabbed her by the throat and held her to the ground.

The alleged victim said she was able to get away from Loveless and escaped out a second-story window after locking herself in a bathroom.

District Judge Mary Jane McCalla Knisely allowed Loveless, who has posted a $2,500 bond, to remain free from jail on the condition of not having contact with the alleged victim.
