Woman Busted for Beating Grandma: Cops

The victim apparently tried to intervene in a fight between her granddaughter and another family member, instigating the attack, Romeoville police said.

A Romeoville woman who attacked her grandmother after she attempted to intervene in a fight between the woman and another family member was arrested Saturday, Romeoville police said.

Rachelle R. Parreno, 30, 604 Sherwood, was charged with aggravated battery of a senior in connection with the incident that occurred at her home at about 5 p.m., Assistant Police Chief Steve Lucchesi said.

Parreno was fighting with a relative over an unknown topic when the 70-year-old grandmother stepped in between the two in an effort to calm the situation, Lucchesi said.

It apparently had the opposite effect, with Parreno allegedly pulling the older woman's hair and kicking her, he said.

Parreno was taken into custody Saturday night and taken to the Will County jail. She is currently free after posting $500 bail, jail records show.

The victim's injuries did not require hospitalization, Lucchesi said.

Maybe she dindn't intentionally to hurt her grandma ! She probably get caught in the middle when the family member are fighting . Look at her she probably weight 80 pounds and i don't think that she can hurt her own grandma .. Better than rapist and murderer right ?! Dude she had the right to bail out that's only misdemeanor .
