SUMMARY OF INCIDENT: On 09/04/16 at approximately 1948 hours, Vermont State
Police were dispatched to 1268 Maple Grove Road, Pownal, for a family
disturbance. The caller was reporting having been bitten and struck in the head
by a family household member, Robyn Baker.

Upon arrival, Troopers conducted an investigation into the matter, during which
human bite marks were observed on the back of the victim's upper arms. The
victim advised Robyn Baker began arguing with him over household chores not
being taken care of and then came after him, to include throwing full beer cans
at him and then jumping on him from behind and biting him several times.

Once Robyn learned police had responded to the residence, she refused to
cooperate and would not advise of her whereabouts and did not return phone calls
to come speak about the incident. Troopers are currently seeking an arrest
warrant for Robyn Baker's arrest.
