YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A Yorktown woman is facing assault charges after officers intervened at her home following an aborted 911 call that prompted a police response.

Shortly after 12:30 a.m. on Sunday morning, the Yorktown Police Department received a 911 call that resulted in the caller hanging up on dispatchers without providing any information.

According to police, following that call, an officer was sent to a Rela Lane Road home in Yorktown to investigate the call. The responding officer conducted a swift investigation at the scene and determined that 38-year-old Maria Schmid, who lives at the residence, attempted to assault her victim.

Schmid was arrested and transported to the Yorktown Police Department, where she was charged with a misdemeanor count of third-degree attempted assault. She was released on $500 bail and is due back in Yorktown Town Court on Tuesday night.
