A Johnson City woman was charged with entering a home and assaulting a person, according to police.

Just after 12 a.m. Friday Johnson City police charged Melanie Wilder, 39, no address given, with aggravated burglary.

This charge came from an incident at Silver Creek Apartments on East Lakeview Drive a short time earlier. Police said in a news release Wilder entered an apartment there without consent and assaulted someone.

Police found Wilder a short time later outside her home.

She was taken to the Washington County Detention Center, where she was being held on $5,000 bond.

Wilder was scheduled to be arraigned in Sessions Court Friday.
