MADISON, Wis. -

A Sun Prairie woman was arrested downtown Saturday after police said she attacked a teen at a gas station.

The Madison Police Department said officers responded to a report of a disturbance involving at least two people at a gas station near the 300 block of South Park Street.

A 19-year-old woman told police she pulled into the gas station and was waiting on an available gas pump when Ratonda Holmes, 23, approached the her car and confronted her.

The report said that after exchanging words, Holmes threw a bottle of water inside the car and on the teen.

The two women have had a sordid past, and the victim told police she felt Holmes was looking for a reason to fight her.

Police said Holmes repeatedly punched the 19-year-old until the two were separated by a bystander.

Police took Holmes into custody. She was taken to Dane County Jail on charges of obstructing an officer and battery.

According to the report, Holmes misrepresented her identity to officers and told police she was not involved in any fight.

Police said Holmes also had an outstanding warrant in Winnebago County on suspicion of theft.
