A Las Vegas woman is accused of attacking her boyfriend in an apartment on the Highlands University campus.

Pamela Gold Leyba, 36, 1211 Chavez St., was charged with assault and battery against a household member.

Around 5 p.m. June 28, the shirtless, shoeless victim showed up at the Highlands University police station to report that he had been attacked. He had marks on his face, back, arms and leg, according to a criminal complaint.

Leyba and the victim had been drinking together when Leyba apparently got upset, the complaint states. She and her children then attempted to beat up the victim, police said. One of the attackers allegedly tried to hit the victim with a hammer.

Leyba also tried to scratch the victim’s eyes out, police said. The victim then ran out in the rain to the campus police station, according to the complaint.

She was later picked up by the state police. The victim refused medical attention.

Magistrate Judge Philip Romero set Leyba’s bond at $3,000 cash-only.
