Cops: West Newton woman cut man because she didn’t get birthday present, cake
Georgia M. Zowacki’s 55th birthday was not what she expected, according to court papers.
The West Newton woman was unhappy and turned violent Wednesday because she didn’t get a birthday present, card or cake, police said. She drank vodka throughout the day to celebrate, but by 3 p.m. started threatening a male companion with a box cutter, according to court papers.
Police were called to the Venable Street home and found the man with several minor cuts on his arm. He told police Zowacki threw his television on the floor, broke his bed and ransacked his room.
Zowacki fled but police found her nearby on a neighbor’s porch. She is charged with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment, terroristic threats and harassment.
She was jailed Thursday on $25,000 bail. An attorney was not listed in online court records.
A June 3 preliminary hearing is set.
