Warrants have been issued for a woman who allegedly assaulted an elderly woman in Ila recently.
Officer Jason Ring went to the home on Fitzpatrick Street where he met with witnesses who said an elderly woman had been struck by another, much younger, woman. They said another man had brought the elderly woman to their house to get her away from the assault. The elderly woman told Ring that she and the younger woman were arguing when the woman grabbed her by the chest/neck area. She said the woman was having “very bad mental issues and needed treatment.”
Ring saw bruising/red marks on the elderly woman’s upper chest and two small red marks on her neck, which he photographed.
In another incident, a woman was arrested recently after a fight with her sister.
Sherry Lynn Wilson, 38, of 131 Gosnell – Hutto Road, Danielsville, was charged with one count of battery/simple battery FVA.
According to the incident report, officer Gary Floyd went to a residence on Diamond Hill – Colbert Road where he met with a woman who said her sister (Wilson) had come to her house after she was told several times to stay away. The two began to argue and Wilson allegedly shoved her sister in the chest. The sister said she hit Wilson back at this point. Wilson left the scene when her sister called 9-1-1. Floyd observed the victim to have bruises and fight marks on her body.
Floyd then went to Wilson’s residence, where she reportedly admitted that she did indeed go to the residence after being told not to and showed him text messages that told her to stay away from her sister. She also said that her sister pushed her first before the fight started. She was arrested.
