Police Swarm Wallace Woods Home After Woman Accosts Roofers

Covington Police surrounded a home on Wallace Avenue early Sunday morning after a woman refused to leave the house following an altercation with roofers working on the house next door.

It all started just after 8 a.m. when the roofing crew showed up to work at the house on the southwest corner of Wallace and Oakland avenues in the Wallace Woods neighborhood. A woman came out from the home directly to the east and began shouting at the crew, one roofer told The River City News.

She was complaining about the noise.

Shortly after, the woman allegedly began to throw buckets and other items, including roof shingles, into the street and towards the roofer, one member of the work crew said. 

That's when one member of the roofing crew called police.

Officers responded but the woman refused to leave her home.

The River City News has reached out to Covington Police for official details on what happened to prompt such a large response. At least half a dozen police cruisers responded to the scene and some officers had weapons drawn.

At around 9:45 a.m., Covington officers entered the home where the woman had refused to exit.

About ten to fifteen minutes later, the officers exited the home with the woman in tow. She locked the home's door and was then escorted to an ambulance which took her from the scene.

This story will be updated when more information is known.
