LAWRENCE — A New Hampshire woman was arrested after she allegedly smashed a friend's laptop computer onto a floor.
When officers William Olivieri and Shaun McLellan arrived at 113 Garden St., about 1:23 p.m. Sunday, they found Glenda Perez, 34, Amherst, N.H., outside and asked her who called the police.
Perez gestured toward her friend's apartment and told police "my friend did."
She told police she had broken the laptop and that they should "do what you gotta do to press charges."
When officers spoke to the owner of the laptop, identified as Ana Gil, 113 Garden St., she told them she noticed three keys on the laptop were missing after Perez' 10-year-old daughter used it and the machine was not functioning properly.
When she told Perez, a childhood friend, she understood it was an accident but that she, (Perez) needed to pay for the damage, Perez became angry and lifted the laptop over her head and said she was going to pay for the entire laptop and slammed it to the floor, completely breaking it.
She told police she grabbed Perez by the arms and asked her why she broke the computer.
Perez was charged with malicious damage to personal property over $250.
She told the officers that Gil allegedly punched her in the face and pulled her hair, and the officers told her they would seek a summons for Gil to appear in court on a charge of assault and battery.
