Cedar Falls police arrested Keyante La’Nae Evans, 19, on Sunday on charges of domestic assault with a weapon, assault with bodily injury and assault. Bond was set at $5,000.

According to court records, Evans became upset after she was asked to pick up after the dog in the back yard of their Spruce Hills Drive home around 1:35 p.m.

Evans allegedly hurled a pot of boiling water at family members and then grabbed a knife and chased her mother. Others in the house attempted to restrain Evans, but the mother suffered a minor stab wound to the chest.

Evans struck another person with a tennis racket so hard that it broke the racket, according to court records. Another family members suffered a burn to the eye from the pot of boiling water.
