A 40-year-old city woman who allegedly entered a home uninvited, later took off her clothes and fought with a city police officer while naked waived her preliminary hearing Wednesday.
Sally Suzanne Campbell waived the following charges before District Judge James Narlesky of Hanover Township (Northampton County): aggravated assault, simple assault, resisting arrest, and two counts of harassment.
Her formal arraignment in Northampton County Court was set for Feb. 6. She was previously released on $20,000 bail.
The incident for which Campbell is charged occurred Oct. 20 in the 500 block of Elmhurst Avenue, about a half-mile from Campbell's home at 2046 Huntington St. in the city's Northeast area.
Some details from the arrest affidavit include:
- Campbell arrived at the Elmhurst Avenue home at 5am. The occupant, a 70-year-old man who did not know her, let her in because he thought she needed help. She was clothed at the time.
- After the homeowner gave Campbell a glass of water, she went to the bathroom and emerged nude. The man told her to put her clothes on and leave, but she said she was in “God’s clothes” and went to his bedroom and got under the covers.
- Fifteen minutes later, the man said, she emerged and got violent "for no reason," punching him, pulling his hair and trying to pull him out of the house. The man called his 24-year-old son who was downstairs; he managed to get Campbell's arms off his father.
- Campbell was calm but naked and seated on the kitchen floor when Sgt. Rodney Bronson arrived. But when Bronson went to get Campbell’s clothes, she said to the homeowner: “Get back here Satan.” With that, she got off the floor and came after Bronson, throwing punches the officer was able to block. At one point, she "mule kicked" him in the leg. Bronson need help from the son to get Campbell handcuffed.
