DES MOINES (AP) -

A Des Moines woman has been arrested on suspicion of pouring bleach on her wife after an argument over air freshener.

   The Des Moines Register reports police arrested a 51-year-old woman Tuesday. A police report says the victim contacted police after she and her wife argued over the victim using air freshener in a bedroom.

   Police say the suspect was upset because the air freshener was making her sick. The police report says the victim locked herself in the bedroom, and the suspect pried the door open with a pair of scissors. Once inside, authorities say she poured a can of bleach over her wife's head and arms.

   Police say the suspect told them the victim had physically assaulted her.

   The suspect faces domestic assault charges and her bail was set at $2,000.
