Centralia Woman Accused of Chasing Victim With Knife Arrested on Warrant


A Centralia woman accused of chasing a woman with a knife in December 2021 has been arrested on a warrant.

Eden Marie Anderson, 20, of Centralia, is facing one count of second-degree assault, domestic violence, after she allegedly threatened to hit a woman with her fist then followed her through the house with a 12- to 14-inch serrated kitchen knife during an argument on Dec. 9, according to court documents.

The Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office filed charges against Anderson on April 14, 2022 and sent Anderson a summons notice for a May 3 preliminary hearing in Lewis County Superior Court.

Anderson failed to appear for that May 3 hearing, and Judge Joely Yeager subsequently issued a $20,000 bench warrant for her arrest.

Defense Attorney Rachael Tiller informed the court during Anderson’s preliminary appearance hearing on Monday that the summons notice had been sent to an incorrect address. She said Anderson did not know about the charges against her until Yeager issued the arrest warrant.

While Deputy Prosecutor Brad Meagher asked Yeager to set Anderson’s bail at $50,000 due to community safety concerns, Yeager set bail at $10,000. She did grant Meagher’s request for a no-contact order protecting the alleged victim.

Anderson has since been released from the Lewis County Jail.
