Police arrest woman after alleged burglary, assault
A Rochester woman has been accused of breaking into a home and assaulting at least one woman, police said today.
The incident began about 12:30 a.m. Sunday, when the woman allegedly entered the home through the unlocked front door and walked to an upstairs bedroom. There, one of the alleged victims said, the 30-year-old suspect began swearing at her and trying to push her into another room.
At one point, two women, ages 23 and 19, were holding the bedroom door shut in an effort to prevent the suspect from entering. She eventually got inside the room and assaulted the 19-year-old, the report says, then left.
Officers arrested the woman at her home, said Sgt. Steve Thompson. She faces charges of first-degree burglary and fifth-degree assault, he said.
The Post-Bulletin typically doesn't identify suspects until they've been charged.
