A 19-year-old Springfield woman was charged with assault when she became violent towards her landlord and his son during an argument over electricity.

The tenant hooked her apartment, located on the third floor, to the electricity on the second floor. The landlord felt this was unsafe, and went to disconnect the electricity box in the basement. The woman followed the man and his 17-year-old son into the basement, where she struck both with a large tree branch.

According to police, there has been an ongoing feud between the woman and the landlord. Officers responded to the incident that took place on Massachusetts Avenue on Wednesday evening.

Although no hospitalization was required, the landlord’s son did sustain a gash to his head, and the woman now faces charges of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
