An 18-year-old male was arrested in Northport for allegedly hitting a woman on the head, possibly with brass knuckles, on Tuesday night.
The 19-year-old victim told investigators she and Rasheed Sullivan got into a physical fight when he hit her head with an object. She believes he may have used brass knuckles to attack her.
The victim was taken to DCH Northport to be treated for non-life-threatening cuts and scratches to her head.
Tuscaloosa County Homicide Unit investigators interviewed witnesses at the scene on Northgate Circle.
Northport Police took Sullivan into custody and charged him with second degree assault. He is being held in the Tuscaloosa County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
Authorities say the case is still under investigation.
