On November 4, 2015 officers from the Cumberland City Police Department responded to the 100 block of Arch Street for a disturbance.  Upon the officers arrival, they could hear a female yelling.  Officers later observed the same female throw her purse on the ground and approach a second female.  As the first female approached the second female they began to fight.  Officers on the scene attempted to separate the two females when one officer was punched in the face.  Officers were eventually able to take both suspects into custody at the scene.  Both subjects identified as, Hannah Ruth Maistros and Colette Jahdyah Whittingham were transported from the scene and taken to the Cumberland City Police Department for processing.  Maistros and Whittingham were later taken before the District Court Commissioner.   Maistros and Whittingham were both released on their own personal recognizance.
