Taunton woman arrested for assaulting disabled woman in Raynham

RAYNHAM, MASS. (WHDH) - A Taunton woman was arrested in Raynham Friday night for her alleged involvement in a violent home invasion.

Officers responded to a mobile home park on Broadway at 7:45 p.m. for reports of a 57-year-old woman in a wheelchair being assaulted.

The suspect, who was later identified as 25-year-old Bridget St. Germain of Somerset Ave, fled on foot into a wooded swamp area when police arrived.

According to police, the victim told officers she did not know St. Germain, and that she had broken the door to her home.

St. Germain then allegedly threw a rock at the rear window of the victim’s car, and struck the victim in the face and the leg inside her home.

The suspect was reportedly looking for another woman who was not home at the time.

A Raynham police K9 found St. Germain in the swamp, and she was taken to Morton Hospital where she was treated for a dog bite.

St. Germain was charged with burglary and assault on a disabled person, and her bail was set at $5,000. She will be arraigned Monday in Taunton District Court.
