Fight led to endangerment charges

LOCKPORT —

A fight between two women in their apartment building Sunday night led to charges of child endangerment for both women, Lockport Police said.

Ashlee M. Catizone, 21, 111 Cottage St., Apt. 4, was charged with third-degree assault along with the child endangerment charge. Cindy A. Clark, 47, who lives at the same address but in Apartment 1, was charged with second-degree harassment in addition to the child endangerment charge. 

Police received two different stories on the incident. According to Catizone, Clark confronted her in the hallway of the building and started an argument. Catizone said that Clark went upstairs for two minutes before returning and kicking her in the back. Catizone said that she struck Clark to defend herself. During the fight, Catizone’s 20-month-old daughter was hurt after Catizone said she was knocked down when Clark attacked Catizone. 

Catizone’s daughter had scratches on her ear and lip, police said. 

Clark, who was taken to ENH-Lockport for a laceration above her left eye, admitted arguing with Catizone, and said she went upstairs to a friend’s apartment before returning shortly after to make sure the door to her apartment was locked. Clark said that Catizone threw a cup of water on her when she returned to the hallway. She said she pushed Catizone, and the two began to fight. Clark also said that Catizone struck her with a coffee cup, causing the laceration. Clark said she wasn’t aware of anyone else being injured during the fight, police said. 

Both women were due in city court Monday.
