Police say Auburn woman attacked man after breaking into his apartment

Police said an Auburn woman who broke into a man’s home and attacked him also struggled with the officer who arrested her.

The Auburn Police Department said that Keri R. A. Miller, 24, of 40 Merriman St., was charged Tuesday with second-degree burglary, endangering the welfare of a child, fourth-degree criminal mischief, resisting arrest and second-degree harassment. Deputy Police Chief Roger Anthony said Wednesday that at 5:03 p.m., Miller broke into the Wall Street apartment occupied by the father of her child, breaking the door.

Miller punched the man several times and tackled him to the ground, Anthony said. The child was in the residence at the time. At one point Miller began to leave, Anthony said, but she and the victim resumed arguing and she hit him again. Once the man managed to get Miller outside, police had arrived.

A brief struggle ensued between Miller and an officer and they both ended up on the ground when the officer attempted to place handcuffs on Miller, Anthony said.
