An East Elmhurst animal hoarder has been convicted of second-degree assault after she pushed a probation officer down a flight of stairs during an unannounced visit to her house last year.
Elizabeth Grant, 51, of 25-44 82nd St., pushed the probation officer in the back as the female officer was walking down stairs, causing her to sustain a back injury on Aug. 29, 2018.
Grant was convicted of cruelty to animals in April 2018 and placed on probation for 10 years during which time she was not allowed to own any pets. She was also informed that she would be subject to unannounced home visits during the 10-year period.
