Woman facing charges for attacking homeowner and mule-kicking officer after getting naked, police say
A woman is facing charges for mule-kicking a police officer after she had stripped naked and attacked a man who had let her in his home last month, officials said.
Sally S. Campbell pulled John Halko's hair, then punched him and grabbed him by his arms after she came out a bedroom naked in Halko's home around 6 a.m. Oct 20, officials said.
Halko told police he had let Campbell into his home at 556 Elmhurst Ave., Bethlehem, at 5 a.m., even though he didn't know her, because she looked like she needed help, officials said.
After Halko got a glass of water for Campbell, she went into the bathroom and came out naked, officials said.
Halko told her to put her clothes back on, but Campbell replied that she was wearing "God's clothes" and went into a bedroom and got under the covers, officials said.
Campbell came out of the bedroom 15 minutes later and attacked Halko, who was using his computer in the dining room, officials added.
Halko's 24-year-old son, Michael Halko, pried Campbell's hands off his father after hearing him call for help, officials said.
When Bethlehem police Sgt. Rodney Bronson arrived, Campbell had calmed down and was sitting on the kitchen floor, but when John Halko tried to walk away to retrieve Campbell's clothes, she said, "Get back here, Satan!" and attacked Bronson, officials said.
Bronson blocked several punches thrown by Campbell, but after he got hold of her arms, Campbell mule-kicked him in the leg, officials said.
Campbell offered so much resistance that Michael Halko had to help Bronson subdue and handcuff Campbell, officials noted.
Campbell, 40, of 2046 Huntington St., Bethlehem, was arraigned Thursday afternoon on charges of aggravated and simple assault, resisting arrest and harassment and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $20,000 bail, according to court documents.
A preliminary hearing is set for 11 a.m. Nov. 15.
