It's tough to predict the actions of a person you've just discovered is wearing your underwear.
Katelyn Stefanick, whose mother owns the apartment house at 54 Northeast St., discovered that Aug. 18 at 5:10 p.m. when she asked Linda A. Limburg, 41, who lives at the first apartment at the address, to return her sports bra.
Stefanick said she often does her laundry using the common washer and dryer at the building. On Aug. 18, she said, she noticed some of her clothes were missing, and mentioned it to her mother, the landlord.
The two women asked Limburg about the missing items on the building's porch outside her apartment, and Stefanick noticed the tenant was wearing her sports bra. Stefanick asked for it back, and Limburg responded by charging at her from the apartment and pushing her.
Aofficer happened to be responding to the address at that moment for a report of a dispute, and witnessed the assault, during which one of the women said, "Don't touch my daughter".
The responding officer detained Limburg in his cruiser, and asked Stefanick if she wanted to press charges. She did, so police arrested Limburg and charged her with simple assault.
