Woman jailed after confrontation at ex-boyfriend's Petaluma home

A confrontation at a southeast Petaluma home ended with the arrest of a Novato woman suspected of assault with a deadly weapon, false imprisonment and resisting arrest, Petaluma police said Monday.

Chatpet Dumrongkitkaset, 51, went to the Adobe Creek home of a former boyfriend where the confrontation occurred late Saturday morning, said Petaluma Lt. Tim Lyons.

Lyons said the woman repeatedly pounded on the front door, demanding entry.

When the 71-year-old resident began to open the door the force of her pushing on it caught the man, who slipped on a rug and hit his head on a hardwood floor, said Lyons.

The suspect then chased a 63-year-old woman upstairs. The woman locked herself in a bathroom and phoned police while the suspect stayed outside the door allegedly threatening her.
