HARRISON TOWNSHIP — A Harrison Township woman has been charged with a felony and three misdemeanors after allegedly abusing her daughters and granddaughter.

According to a press release from the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office, police were called to a township residence in the 26000 block of Crocker Boulevard last week to deal with a “disturbance involving a knife.”

Information relayed in a Macomb County Sheriff’s Office report alleged that the suspect, identified as Angela Lenora Gay, 56, attempted to stab one of her daughters with a pencil prior to biting her hand. The victim also told police her mother allegedly poured urine over her sister, who uses a wheelchair, before standing over her with a knife.

The victim in the wheelchair reportedly told police that her mother allegedly took “a full container of urine” from her disabled uncle and threw it on her. The mother allegedly called her a “crippled b----.”

That same daughter had a “small but visible” cut on her neck, reportedly from her mother’s knife. A granddaughter told police she was scratched and stabbed with a pencil.

Macomb County Prosecutor Eric Smith authorized charges of assault with a dangerous weapon, a four-year felony, as well as three counts of domestic violence — misdemeanors punishable by 93 days in jail and/or a $500 fine.

“As prosecutor I have taken my role seriously in protecting people in our special needs community, and this case is no different,” Smith said via press release. “We will also be asking that this defendant receive a mental health evaluation.”

The suspect was arraigned Feb. 18 in 41-B District Court, in Clinton Township. Her bond was set with a condition of having no contact with her two daughters or granddaughter. At press time, Gay did not have an attorney.

She is scheduled for a probable cause conference Feb. 26 and a preliminary examination March 4, both in front of Judge Carrie Fuca.
