Blue Light Special: Two People Cuffed After Parking Lot Fracas


Lewiston police said things got a bit out of hand Thursday in the parking lot of the Lewiston Center Mall.

This morning's Lewiston Tribune reports that the incident began when 30-year-old Swan Mandujano discovered 33-year-old Greg Elwell drinking alcohol in her car. She told police that when she confronted Elwell, he grabbed Mandujano by the hair and struck her face against the car several times. Elwell is also accused of throwing one of two children into the car. Police said, Mandujano then got into the driver's seat and allegedly ran Elwell over at least two times with the car. But police also said Elwell got into the car and drove away with Mandujano. They were stopped by police at a nearby Kmart parking lot.

Both Elwell and Mandujano were locked up, with Mandujano facing felony aggravated battery and injury to a child and Elwell facing charges of domestic battery, injury to a child and drug paraphernalia possession.

The Tribune reports the two children were turned over to family members.
