Woman breaks into home, assaults 65-year-old resident

BRISTOL,Conn. (WTNH)– A woman was arrested for breaking into a Bristol home and assaulting the 65-year-old resident on Saturday night.

Police say they responded to 197 Davis Drive at around 11:16 PM to the report of a disturbance.

It was then discovered that 45-year-old Candace Morehouse broke into the home and assaulted the resident, as well as damaged some of the resident’s property inside the home.

The victim was injured but did not require transport to a hospital, police said.

Morehouse was charged with burglary, assault on a victim 60 or older, disorderly conduct and criminal mischief. She was help on  $20,000 and will appear in court Monday.

Police say this is unrelated to the recent string of burglaries in Bristol.
