MUGSHOT LaRockA Whitehall woman was charged with multiple felonies after she allegedly struck her ex-boyfriend in the head with a socket wrench.

Samantha L. LaRock, 20, of Montcalm Avenue, was charged with assault in the second degree, burglary in the second degree, both felonies, and criminal possession of a weapon in the fourth degree, a misdemeanor.

Police allege that on Oct. 2 LaRock went to her ex-boyfriend’s house on Firehouse Way in Fort Ann and illegally entered his residence. LaRock then allegedly struck the man in the head with a wrench, causing minor injury.
