Party host charged with neglect

December 27, 2013

WOONSOCKET – The police have filed a new charge of child neglect against a woman who hosted a party at her apartment that turned violent Sunday, they said.

Detective Jamie Paone said the charges against Pamela Perez are justified because her two minor daughters were left in a potentially dangerous situation by their mother, who was stabbed during the party.
Perez’s daughters are 11 and 14 years old. Officers found them sleeping in bed after attempting to corral several party-goers who were fleeing Perez’s second-floor apartment at 65 Morton Ave. when they first arrived. One police officer said the older girl was so difficult to awaken he suspected she was under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

Police responded to Perez’s apartment shortly before 3 a.m. after a neighbor heard glass breaking, screaming and someone threatening to kick in a door, according to reports.

Shortly after they arrived, police said they found Perez stalking the backyard as she clutched a baseball bat and bled profusely from a puncture wound.

Perez, 36, was charged later that morning with assaulting a police officer, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Those charges stem from an encounter she allegedly had with Sgt. John Scully in the emergency room of Landmark Medical Center, where she was treated for the leg wound and a swollen eye. Perez allegedly lunged off her bed and attempted to strike Scully during a fit of rage.

No one was arrested for stabbing Perez. Police say she didn’t give them enough information to identify a suspect.

Child welfare authorities took temporary custody of Perez’s children following her arrest, but Paone said she did not know whether they were returned to Perez’s care after the 72-hour hold expired.

Perez was released on personal recognizance Friday following an initial appearance on the felony charge in Sixth District Court. She’s due back in court for a pre-arraignment conference on March 20.
