PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) — An 88-year-old woman has been charged with assaulting police who responded to her western Massachusetts home, which turned out to be the wrong address.
The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1QUyd0Y ) reports that officers went to the home of Phyllis Stankiewicz on Thursday following a report of a disturbance involving someone with a baseball bat.
Police say Stankiewicz opened her front door while wielding a knife and slapped an officer, after telling police there was no crime there and yelling at them to leave. Authorities later said the disturbance report was actually for a home a block away.
Stankiewicz pleaded not guilty Friday in District Court to assault and battery on a police officer and was released on her own recognizance. She declined to comment when reached by phone by The Associated Press.
