Bolton woman preparing for open house, pushes daughter off stool, gets arrested
BOLTON — On Friday, June 24 at 7:50 p.m., Officer Daniel Keller of the Bolton Police Department responded to a 911 hang-up call on Nourse Road.
According to the Personnel Narrative of Bolton Police Officer Daniel Keller, the 911 hang-up call, which was without an answer or callback, was traced back to an individual known to police.
“I am familiar with [name omitted] as this department has responded to numerous calls to this address which include domestic violence and mental health concerns primarily involving disturbances between [name omitted] and mom Patricia Sandoz,” wrote Officer Keller in his Personnel Narrative. “I requested dispatch to start a Lancaster Police Officer to this location for precautionary measure.”
According to Officer Keller, he was first met with Sandoz, 52, when he arrived on scene.
“Upon arrival I found Patricia Sandoz sitting on the front porch and she looked confused as to why I was there,” wrote Officer Keller. “I advised her that she was being audio and video recorded via my body worn camera.”
Sandoz told Officer Keller that she was preparing for an open house that was scheduled to take place the following day when her daughter got upset at her.
“Ms. Sandoz then explained that she was preparing her house for an open house the next day and she said that [her daughter] was ‘losing her sh*t’ as she was demanding bank information from Ms. Sandoz,” wrote Officer Keller in his Personnel Narrative.
Sandoz said that while her daughter was making the aforementioned “demand,” she was seated at a bar style stool at the breakfast bar in the kitchen.
“Ms. Sandoz told [her daughter] to pack up her room and [her daughter] was then leaning back in her chair causing damage to the floor. Ms. Sandoz told [her daughter] to ‘knock it the f$ck off’ and [her daughter] didn’t stop,” wrote Officer Sandoz.
Officer Keller said that Sandoz then admitting to shoving her daughter off the stool because she “snapped.”
“Ms. Sandoz said that she didn’t care and told [her daughter] to call the cops, arrest me, call DCF, whatever she had to do as Ms. Sandoz is fed up with the way that [her daughter] treats her,” wrote Officer Keller.
Officer Keller then asked Sandoz to step into her garage so he could speak with her daughter.
“[Sandoz’s daughter] stated that she has not been physical with her mother and she admitted to punching her door to her room a couple times out of anger, which led to some superficial cuts on her right knuckle,” wrote Officer Keller in his Personnel Narrative. “[Sandoz’s daughter] stated that Ms. Sandoz has been physical with her on several occasions in the past few weeks and she showed me what appeared to be a mark on her right underarm from the physical confrontation tonight in the kitchen.”
After photographing the mark on her underarm, Officer Keller arrested Sandoz, whom he concluded was the “dominant aggressor” based on “the statements from both parties and the admissions from Ms. Sandoz.”
Sandoz was transported to the Bolton Police Department and released on bail at 10:15 p.m. According to Officer Keller, a 51A report was filed with the Massachusetts Department of Children and Families and Sandoz’s daughter was “offered her Abused person’s notice of rights and declined any emergency orders.”
Sandoz was arraigned in Clinton District Court.
