Authorities are investigating a bizarre incident where a woman allegedly hit a relative in the face with a catfish over the weekend.

According to the Lufkin Police Department, officers were dispatched to the 400 block of Davis Street on reports of a disturbance at about 2:20 a.m. Sunday.

When police arrived, they spoke with three different people who gave authorities their statements.

One of the women said she put a dead fish in her sister-in-law's face and her brother began assaulting her. She also had red marks on her face.
