The man said he received concerning text messages around 2 a.m. from 28-year-old Mariah Conn-Wilhelm. He feared for her, and her 5-month-old son, so he went to check on them.

When he arrived, Conn-Wilhelm got angry and hit him with a frying pan, according to the report. Conn-Wilhelm then called a friend to the apartment.
