Cops: Woman Broke Into Union College President’s Home

SCHENECTADY, N.Y. (AP) — Police say a woman forced her way into the home of Union College’s president and chased him and his wife through the house before campus security guards subdued her.

Schenectady police tell local media that 57-year-old Darlene Verruto of Saratoga Springs kicked in the door at Stephen Ainlay’s house just after 9:30 a.m. Monday.

The Ainlay’s weren’t hurt before locking themselves in a room and calling for help.

Police say the security guards arrived and tussled with Verruto, leaving one of them injured.

They say they can’t explain Verruto’s actions and she was largely incoherent.

She’s facing charges of first-degree burglary, second-degree assault, and second-degree criminal mischief and resisting arrest. Information on whether she has a lawyer wasn’t available.
