A Palo Alto woman was arrested last week for allegedly bashing another woman's head into a washing machine repeatedly, according to police.
The alleged attacker, an employee at Fresho Laundry on West El Camino Real, reportedly punched one of her supervisors on Feb. 22. She then took her boss by the hair and banged her head against the window portion of a washing machine multiple times, said Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department.
Another supervisor, the victim's mother, called the police, Thompson said. After officers arrived, the Palo Alto woman allegedly attempted to attack the victim again and had to be restrained by officers, Thompson said.
Marie Jenkins, 56, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon (the washing machine) and interfering with the duties of a police officer.
Thompson said it was unclear what the motive was for the incident.
