MILTON, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Police say they've charged a woman with burglary and aggravated assault of a sleeping person in Milton.
Police say that 23-year-old Natalie Kirk of Essex Junction entered a residence early Wednesday by smashing a door and then assaulted one of the women sleeping there. Police say they transferred the victim, who hasn't been identified, to Fletcher Allen Health Care for treatment of non-life threatening facial injuries and abrasions.
According to police, Kirk fled the scene but was quickly apprehended nearby and taken into custody. Kirk will appear in court Wednesday on charges of burglary, aggravated assault, driving with a suspended license and violation of conditions of release. Kirk's lawyer could not be reached for comment.
