VERGENNES — An 18-year-old Vergennes resident was charged on Sept. 6 with aggravated domestic assault for allegedly knocking her twin sister unconscious and choking her, and both women were charged with simple assault on a third woman in an earlier incident.
This past Friday, police cited Brittney N. Rogers-Wilson of West Main Street for aggravated domestic assault and lodged her at the Chittenden County Correctional Center for lack of $5,000 bail.
Police said a citizen alerted them to a woman in distress in the back of a pickup truck on Main Street, and when they responded they found Rogers-Wilson’s twin sister. Police alleged that Brittney Rogers-Wilson kicked her in the head, knocking her out, and afterward choked her.
On Sept. 5 police cited both Brittney and Amanda Rogers-Wilson, 18, with simple assault for an Aug. 28 incident. Police said the victim alleged that Amanda Rogers-Wilson kicked and punched her while she was sleeping at their home, and also threw the victim’s cell phone and damaged it, leading also to an additional citation for unlawful mischief.
Police also allege that Brittney Rogers-Wilson later punched the victim in the face in the Champlain Farms parking lot. Police said they believe the sisters were upset that the victim had contacted an ex-boyfriend of one of them.
