Ark City Hairstylist Injured In Attack At Wichita Home Saturday Night

An Ark City businesswoman is continuing to recover from an attack Saturday night in Wichita that led to the arrest of a 37-year-old man.

Ann Hotchkin – a stylist at Remedies Salon & Boutique – sustained numerous head and facial injuries, some of which will require surgery to repair, friends said. A GoFundMe page has been established to help defray the costs of her recovery, especially money lost to time away from work.

Around 10:30 p.m. Saturday, Wichita Police responded to a report of a woman who had been beaten and injured. Hotchkin was transported by ambulance to a local hospital.

The suspect in the case was not at the scene when police arrived. Hotchkin knew the suspect, who was identified as 37-year-old Jason S. Hoffman. Police issued a pickup order for Hoffman for felony domestic violence.

Hoffman was arrested Sunday afternoon at another location in Wichita and booked into the Sedgwick County Jail on a count of aggravated battery. His bond is set at $50,000.

Hoffman remained in jail Monday, according to online arrest records.
