WANTAGH, N.Y. — A woman is accused of assaulting her tenant on Long Island Friday night.
Police responded to an assault at a home along Hunt Road in Wantagh just before 11:30 p.m.
According to authorities, Natalie Lapolosa grabbed her 30-year-old tenant from behind and wrapped a bungee cord around her neck before repeatedly punching her in the head and face.
Lapolosa fled the scene on foot, and the victim was taken to a local hospital for treatment, police said.
A short time after, police were called to the same home when the 43-year-old landlord allegedly returned, threatening the tenant and refusing to leave.
Lapolosa was eventually taken into custody and faces charges of third-degree assault and criminal obstruction of breathing or blood circulation.
