A Hitchcock woman Friday was sentenced to two years probation for beating and stabbing a man with an umbrella and hitting him with plastic bottles.

Patricia Ann Nash, 50, pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, court records show.

“Ms. Nash was previously found incompetent by the court and after two visits to the state hospital, she was restored to competency,” Assistant District Attorney Tiffany Alfred said. “Due to her mental health issues, the state offered her probation as per the victim’s request.”

Hitchcock police responded June 1 to a report of a disturbance in the 7400 block of state Highway 6, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Police interviewed a man who said Nash had assaulted him, according to the affidavit.

Nash told police that the man had fallen, but later denied that she had said that, according to the affidavit.

Police noticed several cuts on the top and left side of the man’s head, according to the affidavit.

The man also said that Nash had tried to poke out his eye with a sharp piece of an umbrella, according to the affidavit.

Police found an umbrella in three pieces and blood in several locations in the residence, according to the affidavit.
