White Rock senior charged with assault

Octogenarian allegedly punched and slapped neighbour in laundry room

A White Rock senior who allegedly slapped and punched her neighbour is facing an assault charge in connection with the laundry-room altercation.

According to a police report, an octogenarian lashed out after another building resident asked the senior to move aside.

“(The assailant) became upset and smacked the other female on the right side of her face and then grabbed her hair and began punching her in the back,” Const. Janelle Shoihet said Friday.

The incident occurred just before 9 a.m. on May 15 in the 1400-block of Martin Drive.

A charge of assault was sworn against Irene Campbell, 84, on July 17. Campbell is due back in Surrey Provincial Court on Sept. 20.
