DELRAY BEACH, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Delray Beach resident Karen Neicy Holbrook is facing a charge of “battery on someone 65 years of age or older” after a bizarre incident on NE 5th Avenue.
According to several witnesses, Holbrook was “bumping” into people on the sidewalk, and eventually hit a 71 year old woman, knocking her to the ground. The woman stood up, tried to walk away, but was blocked by Holbrook.
As witnesses rushed to help the woman, Holbrook allegedly left the scene, entering an apartment in the area of 10 NE 5th Avenue.
Delray Beach Police responded to the scene. The victim was checked out but apparently refused to be taken to the hospital. Police then located Karen Holbrook and charged her with battery on a senior citizen. According to police, “she was uncooperative.”
Holbrook was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail on Thursday. She was released nearly 24 hours later on $1,000 bond.
A court date is pending.
