Woman allegedly assaults nanny, spits on toddler's stroller in Mountain View

Alexis Chandler was arrested for confrontations about two hours apart

A 24-year-old Palo Alto woman was arrested last week on assault charges after she allegedly prompted two back-to-back confrontations with women who were walking with young children on Stierlin Road in Mountain View.

The first altercation happened a little after 11 a.m. on May 24, when the suspect, identified as Alexis Chandler, got off her bike and approached a nanny who was walking an infant along the 400 block of Stierlin Road. Chandler allegedly began yelling at the nanny, and later cornered her and shoved her, according to police spokeswoman Katie Nelson.

Chandler then allegedly argued with a passerby, and shortly after rode away on her bike, Nelson said.

About two hours later, police received another report that Chandler rode up to a woman and her toddler on Stierlin Road, near Central Avenue, and allegedly yelled profanity at them before spitting on the toddler's stroller. There was no interaction between Chandler and the victims, and there appeared to be no reason for why she decided to yell and spit at the mother and the toddler, Nelson said.

Chandler was arrested for assault and booked into Santa Clara County Mail Jail. She was originally arrested for the second incident, but was later linked to the altercation with the nanny, Nelson said.

Another nanny was assaulted in Menlo Park a few weeks ago. The suspect description in this newspaper was very vague. Possible this is the same perp? Glad that the police got her this time.

What a weird and disturbing story this is.

Obviously, another rabid and fanatical opponent of the Nanny State. ;-)
