A woman was arrested at the Oxford Oaks subdivision after finding suspicious texts on her husband’s phone.
Rebecca Jean Cannon, 40, was returning home from dinner Friday night with her husband and their children when she looked through her husband’s phone and found a suspicious conversation, according to an arrest report from the Wildwood Police Department.
When they arrived home, the children were sent to the back patio and the couple went to their bedroom to talk. The husband told police that Cannon was “screaming questions into his face” and repeatedly “hit him on the left side of his face with an open right hand while pulling his hair on the right side of his head with her left hand,” the report said. Cannon told him he needed to leave and he agreed. Cannon still had her husband’s phone and would not return it to him. The man took his son’s phone and called law enforcement.
She was arrested on a charge of domestic battery and booked at the Sumter County Detention Center. She was released after posting $1,000 bond.
