August 14, 2013

SKOWHEGAN, Maine (AP) — Three women police say burst into a Skowhegan apartment where they beat a woman with their fists and threatened her boyfriend with a baseball bat have been arrested.

Deputy Chief Dan Summers says the suspects went to an apartment in town just before midnight Monday, apparently angered about a related theft.

Summers says they banged on the door with a bat and rushed in when the woman opened it.

He tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/124kEkl ) they grabbed the woman by her throat and threw her against the wall. Two started punching her while a third watched.

Summers says it’s “unusual” for women to be involved in a home invasion.

Arrested were 33-year-old Stacey Lynn Robinson; 28-year-old Kristina Santamore; and 34-year-old Brandy St. Pierre. It was not clear if they had lawyers.
