A woman was arrested last week for allegedly bashing another woman’s head into a washing machine repeatedly, according to police. The suspect, an employee at Fresho Laundry on West El Camino Real, reportedly punched one of her supervisors on Feb. 22. Allegedly, she then took the supervisor by the hair and banged her head against the window portion of a washing machine multiple times, said Sgt. Sean Thompson, public information officer for the Mountain View Police Department. Another supervisor, the victim’s mother, called the police, Thompson continued. After officers arrived, the suspect attempted to attack the victim again, and had to be restrained by officers, Thompson said. Marie Jenkins, 56, of Palo Alto, was arrested for assault with a deadly weapon (the washing machine), and interfering with the duties of a police officer. Thompson said it was unclear what the motive was for the attack.

BANK ROBBED A man robbed the Chase Bank at 2510 W. El Camino Real on Tuesday, according to police. No weapon was seen during the robbery, which occurred at about 5:55 p.m., Feb. 19, according to Mountain View police spokesman, Sgt. Sean Thompson. No one was injured, he said. The robber, described as a white man in his late 30s, under 6 feet tall, of average build and wearing dark colored clothing and sunglasses, walked into the bank as tellers and other employees were preparing to close for the day. He walked up to one of the tellers and demanded money. It is unclear whether he said he was armed. The teller handed over an undisclosed sum of money and the man was last seen walking west through the bank’s parking lot.

LAPTOPS STOLEN Two laptops were stolen from a Mountain View apartment in the 500 block of Del Medio Avenue, after a burglar broke in using some kind of tool, police said The 27-year-old victim told police he returned home at about 12:30 a.m. on Feb. 26 after being gone most of the previous day, to find his front door ajar and two laptops missing from inside his apartment, which is located in an apartment complex. According to police spokesman Sgt. Sean Thompson, only the laptops were taken and nothing else seemed to be moved or disturbed inside the apartment. There was a tool mark noticed on the outside of the front door, about 1-inch wide, which police believe was used to force the door open. The man has a deadbolt on his front door, but it was not locked, Thompson said. Only the door knob was locked. Police said they have no suspects at this time. —Mountain View Voice staff NPOLICELOG ASSAULT W/ DEADLY WEAPON
