A 29-year-old Kingston woman has been charged with assault and mischief after her brother was attacked and a parked car was damaged with a pitchfork.
Police said a downtown resident was awakened Friday morning by the sound of smashing ceramics to discover his sister throwing objects around their shared living room and breaking glass in the living room window.
The victim tried to leave to call police, but his sister followed him outside and allegedly threw a vacuum at his head. She then punched him in the head and scratched his arm.
The victim watched as the accused then picked up a pitchfork and began striking a parked vehicle, damaging the passenger side mirror.
When police arrived, they discovered the woman in her underwear, still clutching the pitchfork.
She dropped the pitchfork and ran from the police.
She was apprehended after trying to “hide in a small plastic children’s pool. She then fled from police a second time, jumping over a chain-link fence and running down the street.”
Police said they believed the woman was “under the influence of crystal methamphetamine.”
