Vergennes Police Log for Apr. 4
VERGENNES — Vergennes police on March 27 cited twin sisters living in a Creekview Apartment on Hillside Drive for domestic assault, and added a second citation to each for committing the offenses in the presence of children.
Police said the alleged altercation between Britney J. Rogers-Wilson and Amanda N. Rogers-Wilson, both 24, left both with bruises and scratches, and allege that it occurred in the presence of four children 4 years old or younger.
Police were asked by a relative to check the welfare of one of the sisters later that evening and determined she was fine. They were also called back to the apartment the sisters share on March 31 when one sister accused the other of yelling at and harassing her, and the officers calmed the occupants down.
