SARATOGA SPRINGS — A Lake George woman faces two felony assault counts for allegedly kicking two nurses in the head while a patient at Saratoga Hospital, police said.

Cassandra R. Barden, 33, was arrested Friday after an investigation by Saratoga Springs Police, records show.

The two victims suffered head injuries that included contusions and bruises. It was unclear what prompted Barden to allegedly attack them.

Barden was charged with counts of second-degree assault under a section of law that makes it a felony to injure a nurse who is performing their duty.

She was arraigned and sent to Saratoga County Jail for lack of bail.
