Bristol Police Log: Bristol woman cited for assault
BRISTOL — On Thursday, April 26, Bristol police arrested town resident Crystal King, 30, and cited her for simple assault and providing false information to law enforcement.
At 8:30 p.m., a North Street resident called the police to say they had locked themselves in a room because they were afraid of another subject in the residence. Assisted by Vermont State Police, Bristol police investigated and determined that King had assaulted a juvenile female guest of the caller.

King was released and ordered to answer the charges in court on June 11.
