    A 57-year-old disabled woman, who uses a wheelchair for mobility, was assaulted by an assailant she did not know after a violent home invasion on Friday night in Raynham, Massachusetts.

    The suspect arrested is Bridget St. Germain, 25 of Taunton, Ma.

    Raynham Police report that they responded to a mobile home park at 1540 Broadway, where the victim resides, at 7:45 p.m., regarding an assault.

    When officers arrived, St. Germain fled on foot into a wooded swamp area.

    The victim told officers that St. Germain had broken the door to the home, threw a rock at the rear window of the victim's vehicle and had struck the victim in the face and leg inside the home.  St. Germain was looking for another woman who was not home at the time.

    When the officers surrounded the area, St. Germiain refused to surrender and Rayhnam Police K-9 Kyro located her in the swamp.

    The victim was treated at the scene but she refused further treatment.

    St. Germain was taken to Morton Hospital where she was treated and released for a dog bite to her leg.

    Bail is set at $5,000 and St. Germain is scheduled to be arraigned on July 11, 2016 in the Taunton District Court for burglary and assault on a disabled person.
