A York man allegedly evicted his roommate and then assaulted her with a plastic tote.
The 27-year-old victim saw Joseph Smith, 69, in his wheelchair throwing her clothes out of the Will Road home they shared Thursday morning. Smith said he did not want her back once she returned from rehab, a police report states.
The victim believes her eviction stems from her rejection of Smith’s romantic interests, according to a police report. She claims Smith threw a plastic tote full of clothes at the victim, making her fall and scrape her knees and toe. Smith said she fell while fighting over the tot with him.
Smith was charged with third degree assault and battery.
