NORWALK, Conn. A Stamford woman tried to break into her grandmother's Norwalk home Tuesday afternoon so she could do her laundry. Norwalk Police say that led to a physical altercation between the 81-year-old grandmother and 20-year-old Kaitlyn Keys of 28 Rose Park Ave., who was arrested.
Police gave this account of the incident:
The grandmother told police her granddaughter had been living with her but that arrangement had ended more than a year ago because Keys stole money and hit her. Keys had been told many times never to return. Tuesday she took a train from Stamford to wash her blanket at her grandmothers house because she has scabies, an infectious skin condition. The grandmother said no, and Keys began yelling and swearing and was asked to leave. The grandmother closed the door after Keys went outside, but the younger woman kicked the back door and tried to get in the through the kitchen window. The grandmother hit her hand with a grill brush to keep her from getting in, and Keys grabbed an object off the sill and hit her grandmother.
Keys was charged with assault on a victim over 60, third degree; criminal trespass, first degree; and criminal trespass, third degree. Bond was $25,000, which was reduced to $10,000 at court. A protective order was put in place.
