A 21-year-old Harvard woman was arrested after she attacked a member of her household and then struck a police officer in the groin Sunday morning, authorities said.
Marlene Alvarado, 21, of the 300 block of North Lincoln Street in Harvard, was charged with domestic battery, aggravated battery to a peace officer and two counts of resisting arrest.
The Harvard Police Department responded around 3 a.m. Sunday to the 300 block of North Lincoln Street for a report of a domestic disturbance.
Officers learned that Alvarado physically attacked a member of her household by pushing and pulling him.
During her arrest, Alvarado struck an officer in the groin with her leg and resisted arrest, according to Harvard Deputy Police Chief Tyson Bauman.
Alvarado was transported to the McHenry County jail where a judge ordered her held on a $30,000 bond.
She was released after posting $3,000 bail Monday afternoon, jail records show.
Alvarado was ordered to surrender all firearms to police and stay away from the victim she battered as part of her bond conditions.
She will appear in court again on Wednesday to set her preliminary hearing date.
