Burbank woman allegedly beats roommate's relative with walking cane

A 56-year-old woman was arrested Monday after allegedly attacking a relative of her roommate who reportedly wouldn’t leave her Burbank home.

The 30-year-old victim told officers that she went to her family member’s apartment in the 100 block of North Maple Street to cook a meal, when the roommate – identified by police as Miriam Bordoni – told her to get out, Burbank Police Sgt. Darin Ryburn said.

The verbal confrontation escalated when Bordoni allegedly reached for a nearby walking cane and smacked the victim’s head about four times, Ryburn said.

The victim sustained a one-inch cut on the top of her head, according to police, who responded shortly after noon.

Bordoni was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon and being held in lieu of $30,000 bail.
