Woman Charged with Elder Abuse

On Wednesday, September 6, 2023, officers responded to the 500 block of Mustang Drive for an assault that had taken place. When officers arrived, it was learned the suspect, Amanda Faith Reeves, was involved in a verbal altercation inside the residence. The homeowner attempted to stop the altercation and during the process was assaulted by Reeves.

Another homeowner arrived and shortly thereafter was assaulted by Reeves as well. Reeves then took the homeowner’s vehicle without permission and left the scene. A short time later, Reeves returned the vehicle. During the altercation, Reeves took a walking cane from one of the victims and vandalized the victim’s vehicle with it. Both victims were evaluated by Dothan Fire and Rescue at the residence for a minor injury that each of them received.

Reeves was at the scene when officers arrived but was uncooperative. She was taken into custody without incident. Due to the age of the victims being over 60, Reeves was charged with two counts of Elder Abuse Second Degree. She was also charged with one count of Theft of Property First Degree. Her total bond was set at $150,000.00.
