A 48-year-old Rochester Hills woman is facing multiple charges after allegedly attacking a friend who refused her sexual advances.

Allison Thompson Weaver was arraigned Sept. 20 in 52-3 District Court on one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, a 15-year felony; one count of assault with intent to do great bodily harm, a 10-year felony; and one count of  assault with intent to maim, a 10-year felony.

Judge Nancy Carniak set bond at $75,000 and scheduled a pre-trial hearing for 1:15 p.m. Sept. 30.

The incident, according to deputies from the Oakland County Sheriff's Office’s Rochester Hills substation, took place at the Lake Village Apartment complex, in the 2300 block of Norfolk Drive, at 1:30 a.m. Sept. 17.

A resident called police and said he could hear two women fighting and that one person was moaning and calling for help.  

When deputies arrived, they heard a woman crying for help, and they entered the apartment through an unlocked door. They found two partially nude women covered in blood lying on the bedroom floor. 

Police say Weaver was hovering over another woman — a 44-year-old Rochester Hills resident — and appeared to be under the influence of alcohol or unknown drugs.

Deputies said the 44-year-old woman had numerous bite marks on her face and several facial injuries, and part of her left ear had been bitten off.

An investigation revealed that the two women had been neighbors in the past and that the 44-year-old woman had invited the former neighbor over to her apartment for drinks. 

The resident told deputies that Weaver made sexual advances toward her, which she refused, and then the resident went to bed. She reportedly woke up later to find her clothing had been removed by Weaver, who was allegedly strangling and biting her, telling her that she was going to kill her.  

Paramedics from the Rochester Hills Fire Department provided medical care to the victim, who was bleeding heavily from her left orbital area and ear. Once she was stabilized, she was transported to a hospital for further medical attention.  

Weaver was also taken to a hospital for detox and a medical evaluation, and she later was lodged at the Oakland County Jail. Unknown drugs and alcohol were recovered at the scene. The incident remains under investigation.

Weaver’s attorney, Kimberly DiBartolomeo, said she did not have any comments at press time.
