A Hudson Valley teen with a checkered past is facing felony charges for allegedly hitting a woman with her car.

On Wednesday around 3:30 p.m., Ellenville police responded to a large fight in progress on Market Street. Arriving officers found 30 people involved in a confrontation on the street, with one person injured.

Prior to police arrival, a female driver returned to the area, drove on the sidewalk and hit a woman who earlier knocked the driver to the ground, police say.

According to several witnesses, the driver, 18-year-old Jenah M. Hammel of Ellenville, then placed the car in reverse and tried to run over the injured woman. Instead, Hammel backed into a parked car, which gave the victim time to get out of the area.

Hammel then fled the scene but turned herself in a short time later, police say. She was charged with assault, a felony, leaving the scene of a personal injury accident and endangering the welfare of a child, misdemeanors.

Two weeks ago, Hammel was accused of assaulting a witness and telling the woman she was going to harm her more, or her family, if she went to the police. It’s unclear if the two situations are related.

Police learned that a passenger in Hammel’s car, 19-year-old Shaquon J. McGinnis, fled the vehicle at the scene. He was found and charged with criminal contempt and criminal contempt as an aggravated family offense, both felonies.

A struggled ensued as McGinnis was being taken to the Ellenville police station which resulted in damage to an officer’s personal car and minor lacerations to McGinnis’s face, police say. He was treated and released from Ellenville Hospital.

Both were remanded to Ulster County Jail on $25,000 cash bail or $50,000 bond.

The unnamed woman who was hit by the car was treated for undisclosed injuries at Ellenville Hospital.
