A 40-year-old woman who assaulted her sister with a kitchen saucepan and stick during a fight at their shared home over food was today [June 28] given a conditional discharge.
Tara Burrows pleaded guilty to assault and violently resisting arrest in May of this year. The court heard both sisters were at the home they share in Sandys when a heated argument began over cookies disappearing from the kitchen.
The Court heard the defendant hit her sister with a kitchen pot, and that the victim rushed out of the house, however was chased by her sister who then hit her with the pot again outside.
She shouted “I will kill you” at her sister, with the Court heard that eventually neighbours had to help break up the fight.
Police were called to the scene, and Tara Burrows proceeded to try and bite the police officer while being arrested, leading to the additional charge of violently resisting arrest.
Magistrate Warner handed down a conditional discharge to Ms Burrows.
