Woman Arrested For Assaulting Elderly Mother

By Beth Milligan | July 10, 2018

A 58-year-old woman was arrested over the weekend for assaulting her elderly mother.

The 80-year-old victim and her 81-year-old husband sought help from Grand Traverse Sheriff's Office deputies at the law enforcement center at 4pm Saturday. The couple said an argument had occurred between the mother and daughter over allegations of stolen sunglasses, and that the daughter shoved and pushed her mother, raised her fists, and stated "I'm going to kill you."

The father was able to separate the two women, at which point the suspect began throwing items around the house. The suspect then grabbed a phone charger cable cord and wrapped it around her mother's neck. The father was able to push his daughter away, and the couple left the residence to seek help from authorities.

Deputies went to the Long Lake Township residence and found the daughter there. She was arrested for domestic assault/strangulation and a personal protection order violation.
