A Rock Hill woman was jailed after twice hitting her child’s father with a car and chasing after another woman with a knife, according to Rock Hill Police.
The 32-year-old victim was found lying in the fence line of a home on the 400 block of East White Street just after 2 a.m. Wednesday, according to a police report. He told officers that Jasmine Hall, 20, with whom he has a child, hit him with the vehicle multiple times and left.
A female witness said Hall came to the home upset, got out of the vehicle with a scissor jack and came after her, police said. Hall reportedly grabbed the woman’s shirt, ripping it, and swung the jack at her several times, hitting her at least three times.
Hall grabbed a knife from the car and chased after the woman with it, but the woman was able to get away, police said. Hall returned to the vehicle and drove the car toward the male victim, who threw a bicycle at the car.

Hall backed the car up and drove toward the victim, hitting him and the trash can he was hiding behind, the report states. The impact pushed the victim into a fence. He stood up, and Hall again backed up and drove toward the victim, striking him again and pushing him into the fence.
Officers found the vehicle on the 200 block of Garden Way, and the jack was found in the back seat, police said. Hall said she was at the home and planned to use the jack as a weapon but denied “knowingly hitting” the victim with the car.
Hall told officers she was upset because the victim wouldn’t help her support their 1-year-old son, and went to his home to address the matter. She again denied hitting him with the car but said “she did not know what took place and that she had blacked out.”
She was charged with attempted murder and second-degree assault and battery.
