Many people in Connecticut know of the stress that is often associated with living next to someone who may be inconsiderate, making it difficult to get along. While such a scenario is frequently irritating, it rarely results in violence. Despite this, a woman is now accused of assault after she allegedly become involved in a dispute with a neighbor.
Police say they were called to a residence during the early morning hours of a day in early February. Upon arrival, they reportedly discovered a 55-year-old woman who was "bleeding profusely" from her head. She was treated at the scene before being transported to the hospital.
Reports claim that the injury came as a result of a dispute with the woman's 56-year-old neighbor. Though the details of the dispute are unclear, the older woman is accused of hitting the injured woman in the head with a steak sauce bottle. She was arrested and now faces a charge of assault. Following her arrest, she was held on a $1,500 bond.
Unfortunately, many of the details regarding the dispute are unclear. It is possible that during the encounter, the defendant felt her life was endangered, forcing her to take action to protect herself. To help her adequately respond to the assault charge against her, the Connecticut woman may want an experienced criminal defense attorney on her side to guide her through the proceedings of the criminal justice system. With such a professional by her side, she may feel more confident in the decisions that she must make.
