Two homeless sisters were arrested for fighting an elderly Bayonne woman who would not allow them into an apartment complex where they said their friend lived, police said.
Linda Krieg, 48, and Raquel Krieg, 42, both described as homeless, were both charged with multiple outstanding court warrants, while Linda Krieg was also charged with simple assault, according to Police Lt. Eric Amato.
The sisters were taken into custody at roughly 2:48 p.m. on Monday from the area of 22nd Street and Avenue E, authorities said.
The 78-year-old female victim reported that, while in the lobby of her apartment complex, two females, later identified as Linda and Raquel Krieg, attempted to enter the complex to visit their friend.
They began banging on the locked door, demanding the victim to let them in, thus bypassing the visitor check-in process required at the main entrance.
The victim then waited by the elevator as another resident let the actors in. While waiting for the elevator, Linda and Raquel approached the victim from behind and Linda pulled the victim by the hair, threw her to the floor, and kicked her, officials said.
The actors then left the victim on the floor and boarded the elevator. The Kriegs were located on 22nd Street and Avenue E where the victim positively identified them as the actors of the assault. The victim suffered minor injuries and refused medical attention, police said.
During the investigation and arrest process, it was learned that both actors were wanted on numerous outstanding warrants out of Bayonne, Jersey City, and Hoboken.
