Somali woman gets probation in meat hook attack
A Somali woman charged with slashing another woman with a meat hook a little more than a year ago at Greeley’s meatpacking plant will spend the next two years on probation for the crime.
Ayan Mohamed, 27, was arrested March 24, 2011, on suspicion of second-degree assault, a felony that would normally be punishable by two to six years in prison. The attack occurred at the JBS meatpacking plant in north Greeley.
According to Greeley police reports, Mohamed called fellow worker, Fartun Abdullahi, 20, to the second-story locker room at the JBS meatpacking plant on March 17, 2011. Abdullahi told police Mohamed pulled out a sharpened meat hook from behind her back, and struck her in the forehead and eyelid, grabbed her hair and began striking her in the back with the blunt end of the meat hook holder.
