An Arizona woman was arrested after allegedly breaking into a doggy door at a random Arizona home and attacking two young girls on Tuesday.
FOX News reports that Kristen Marie Anderson, 34, snuck through through the doggy door of a Happy Valley neighborhood home on Tuesday morning. Two young girls, ages 10 and 12, were inside the home when Anderson broke and in started attacking them. Anderson reportedly grabbed on the girls and threw her down, which gave the other girl a chance to grab a kitchen knife and stab the suspect.
Both girls then ran out of the house screaming. One the girls called her father, who contacted 911.
When police arrived, they found Anderson running down the street, away from the house she broke into. When they confronted her, she started screaming, “You can’t control me!”
Neighbors reported they witnessed Anderson jumping fences and striking trees. One of the neighbors said her husband attempted to talk to the suspect, but Anderson didn’t respond and instead, stared at him blankly.
“He said, ‘Hey, how are you? How ya doing?’ She just turned and looked at him and had a blank stare on her face.”
Police arrested Anderson and sent her to a local hospital for medical treatment for the stab wound and for a mental evaluation. Hospital staff members said Anderson refused to cooperate when they tried to administer a CT scan. She reportedly kicked a nurse in the stomach when the nurse attempted to give her a sedative.
Anderson was booked into the Maricopa County jail and charged with kidnapping, aggravated assault, and second-degree burglary. A judge set her bond at $5,000 and ordered she wear an electronic monitoring device upon release.
