Woman allegedly assaulted by bird-sitter

A North Hollywood woman was allegedly attacked with a hammer Tuesday

by a woman she hired to watch her bird.

When the North Hollywood woman went to pick up the bird, a 2-year

old jandae conure parrot, from the sitter’s house in the 1400 block


of Pepper Street, that woman accused her of owing money. The argument

escalated until the Burbank woman allegedly grabbed a hammer and

began swinging it at the North Hollywood woman, eventually hitting a

fence, police said.


The North Hollywood woman was able to run away and contact police,

but as of late Friday, police said they had not been able to locate

the suspect. In addition, police said the green, orange and red bird

is missing, and its whereabouts are unknown.
