Woman charged with assaulting senior citizen

From the Palm Beach Post:

AssaultA 32-year-old suburban West Palm Beach woman was arrested last week on charges that she slammed a screen door on an older man who lives in her mobile home park.

Heather Roberts was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday on charges of assault and battery on a person age 65 or older and of unarmed burglary. She was released Friday on $5,000 bail.

The incident took place Thursday morning at the Oak Land Park Mobile Home Park north of Belvedere Road and west of Florida’s Turnpike, where Roberts lives and where the man she is accused of assaulting is a board member.

According to a probable-cause affidavit made public Friday, Roberts went to the man’s house to discuss hiring volunteers to patrol the community to cut down on crime. In a raised voice, the man told Roberts the community did not have money to pay for the patrols.
