Woman accused of assaulting daughter, knocking husband out of wheelchair


A woman allegedly assaulted her daughter and husband at home Tuesday, after she believed one of them called the police on her, according to police. 

Yvonne Cordero was charged with Aggravated Assault (Domestic Violence), Assault (Domestic Violence), and Vulnerable Adult Abuse in the incident, police said. 

At about 3:20 p.m., officers responded to the Cobblestone Farms residence to assist the Maricopa Fire Department. Officers left the scene shortly after, police said. 

About 20 minutes after officers left the residence, officers were summoned back to the home. A dispatcher advised that on a 911 call people could be heard screaming during what sounded to be a physical altercation. 

Shortly after the officers arrived back at the home, they concluded Cordero had assaulted the family members, according to the probable cause statement. Cordero believed her daughter had called the police on her during the agency assist and allegedly assaulted her near the front door of the residence, police said. 

Cordero allegedly grabbed her daughter by her hair and began punching her in the back of the head, according to the probable cause statement, which added that Cordero pulled her daughter to the ground by her hair, punched her in the nose and kicked her in the back. 

According to police, Cordero’s husband, who uses a wheelchair, attempted to get between them. Cordero then allegedly hit him on the right side of his face with a closed fist, causing him to fall out of his wheelchair, according to the probable cause statement. 

The husband remained on the floor until fire department personnel could evaluate him and lift him back into his wheelchair, police said. 

Cordero was arrested and booked into Pinal County Jail on the charges, police said.
