A Laurelton woman was arrested Saturday afternoon after Nassau County police say she ignored requests to leave a Valley Stream Home Depot, resisted arrest and assaulted two officers.
Store employees told police that Lynda Bodkin, 46, was in the store on a prior occasion causing a disturbance and was advised not to return. Detectives said that Bodkin ignored the officers’ numerous requests to leave the Home Depot, and when they tried to arrest her she kicked one officer in knee, flailed her arms and spit at them.
One of the officers was treated at a local hospital for a knee injury. A second officer was treated at the scene for lacerations to his arms.
Bodkin was eventually taken into custody and charged with assault, resisting arrest and trespassing. She was arraigned at First District Court in Hempstead on Sunday.
