Aunt reports assault by nieces

A 35-year-old woman called Sunnyside police for help yesterday, Sept. 5, at 9:21 a.m., reporting she was assaulted by three nieces, ages 13, 14 and 15, and a second 15-year-old.

Officers were called to an apartment in the 1700 block of Cascade Way regarding a family fight and heard a report from the victim that indicated she had been fearful of the girls the night before (Monday) and left her apartment through a window to take refuge at a neighbor's.

She told officers she assumed the girls were sleeping when she awoke yesterday, so returned to her apartment to get ready for work. According to her report to police, the four girls then came out of an apartment, jumped her and beat her. Police noted that her right eye was swollen.

Police said that, due to conflicting stories, no arrests were made at that time.

Police also investigated another family fight, reported yesterday by a mother who told officers her daughter was pushing and shoving her, doing as she wanted and refusing to attend school.

Police also investigated two thefts, one of a CD player taken from a vehicle in the 200 block of Merrick Avenue and another involving the new owner of an RV park, who claimed the previous owners were refusing to turn over September rent payments and money they had taken from the laundry machines.

From 8:03 a.m. yesterday through 7:21 a.m. today (Sept. 6), officers also investigated a violation of a no-contact order, 10 traffic problems, a suspicious person, a missing person, one report of lost property, a juvenile problem, one driving under the influence, four animal problems, an abandoned vehicle and four automatic alarms.

They also served six arrest warrants and two court orders, gave three assists to agencies and two to residents, provided three extra patrols and responded to three informational calls.
