Downtown Assault / Stolen Election Signs

Assault
A thirty five year old homeless woman was arrested Sunday morning on Talbot Street.  The homeless woman approached a 55 year old female worker standing on the sidewalk in front of a downtown shelter and began yelling obscenities at her.  When the worker turned her back on the woman, she reached out and pulled the worker by the hair.  As short scuffle ensued until another worker at the shelter intervened.  As a result the homeless woman was located by officers a short distance away and was taken into custody.  She is now charged with one count of Assault and was released on a Promise to Appear in Court.
