Huron County Sheriff’s deputies arrested a 65-year-old Norwalk woman after she allegedly assaulted her daughter with a coffee cup.

Shirley K. Cozart, 65, 4400 block Gibbs Road, Norwalk was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of assault Saturday evening after officials say she attacked her daughter and her son-in-law who live with her.

Capt. Ted Patrick said she allegedly threw the cup, hitting her daughter in the back, then threw a cell phone that hit her son-in-law.

Patrick said Cozart became upset that the couple helped a neighbor who has medical issues with mowing and housework. It’s not clear why that angered her.
