Man charged after 60-year-old woman assaulted

Falls police arrested a Jordan Gardens man after receiving reports that he had thrown a 60-year-old woman to the ground, knocking a tooth out of her mouth in the process.
Gerald E. Jones, 46, 9A Jordan Gardens, was charged with third-degree assault and second-degree harassment about 6:30 p.m. Thursday.
When police arrived on the scene, there was a large group of people outside of the victim’s apartment. She said Jones had thrown her to the ground.
Officers found Jones at his apartment. He said the woman, his step-children’s grandmother, had tried to force her way into his apartment so he grabbed her and threw her, causing her to “tumble to the ground.”
Jones was taken into custody and brought to a patrol car parked at the side of the apartment to avoid any confrontations with the people at the front of the building.
