BRISTOL - A city woman already facing charges for allegedly assaulting a nurse has been accused of assaulting another hospital employee.

Noella Morin, 66, of 30 Sheila Court, allegedly threw her hands and feet around uncontrollably, causing her hand to hit a medical technician’s face multiple times, during an emergency room visit on Aug. 21, according to the arrest warrant.

Morin also allegedly grabbed the woman’s arm and squeezed, leaving her with scratch marks and redness, the warrant said. The complainant told police she had been trying to help restrain the 66-year-old after she became aggressive.

She has been charged with assault on medical personnel and second-degree breach of peace.

Morin had already been facing similar charges after an incident on Sept. 9, when she allegedly assaulted a nurse. In that case, she has been accused of punching a 27-year-old woman in the side of the face as she was trying to help her back down onto her bed, according to the police report.

An officer noted in the report that the nurse had a small cut on her face that was bleeding and had some redness to it.

According to police, Morin in that case was not cooperative with the booking process and faces charges of assault on medical personnel and failure to comply with fingerprint requirements.

The warrant for Morin’s arrest on the most recent charges was not signed until three days after her arrest on Sept. 9. She was not charged in the August incident for over a month.

Morin was arraigned this week in New Britain Superior Court, where her case was continued to Nov. 19. She has not entered a plea in either case.
