Destina Michella Segura Plantz, 23, of Dayton, pleaded not guilty in the Clark County Municipal Court on Wednesday morning. Bond was set at $5,000.

Springfield Police Division officers were sent to the hospital at about 6 p.m. Tuesday about a possible assault.

A hospital security officer told police he saw the victim holding down the suspect in a car. An argument led to the suspect striking the victim in the car. The man then attempted to hold the woman’s arms to keep her from hitting him when she allegedly bit him in the face.
