Sheriff’s Report: Woman forces her way into South Summit home

The Summit County Sheriff’s Office arrested a woman last week after she forced her way into a South Summit home while a 14-year-old boy was there.

On Sept. 26, a 14-year-old boy claimed a woman with blood smeared on her face began pounding on the front door while he was home alone, a report states. The boy said when he opened the door the woman forcefully pushed her way into the home and began speaking incoherently.

According to the report, the boy “feared for his safety” and fled to a neighbor’s home. From there, he reportedly dialed 911. 

When law enforcement officials arrived the woman locked the doors and was only visible through a window in the kitchen, the report states. Deputies used a key to access the home and found the woman in the bathtub.
