FARGO -- An arrest warrant has been issued for a Kindred woman charged with aggravated domestic assault after allegedly beating her mother in the head with a metal pole.


Amber Rae Asleson, who is 26 or 27, was charged Monday in Cass County District Court with one count of Class C felony domestic aggravated assault.

According to court documents, Asleson's mother, Lisa Miller, was at her home in Fargo about 4:39 p.m. April 20 when Asleson walked in, picked up a metal pole and started striking her mother in the head.

The police report says Asleson then punched her mother in the face six times, threw her to the ground by her hair and kicked her in the side, leaving her mother with a bloody nose and other injuries. A friend of Miller's separated the two, and Asleson left in a minivan.

The report says Miller told police her daughter has never abused her before. A warrant was issued for Asleson's arrest Tuesday.
