LATEST: Woman accused of smashing vehicle windows with child inside


A Riviera Beach woman is accused of smashing a car’s windows with a crowbar while a woman and a child sat inside, city police said.

Xandria Jackson, 26, was arrested on Wednesday for charges of criminal mischief, weapon offense, two counts of aggravated assault with a weapon and child cruelty, a police report said. Her bond was set at $16,000, and she was released from jail the same day.

On June 7, police say a black vehicle drove up to the victim’s car that was in front of a home on West 25th Street. Jackson got out of the back seat with a crowbar in hand, a police report said.

She used the crowbar to shatter the driver’s-side windshield of the victim’s vehicle, the report said. The woman inside the vehicle said Jackson knew the child was there, sitting in a child seat.

The woman put her vehicle in reverse and tried to drive away. Jackson began yelling at her, but said because it was raining and the car’s windows were closed, she couldn’t hear Jackson, the report said. Jackson then went to the back of the vehicle and threw the crowbar through the rear window, causing a section of it to break.

Jackson then got the crowbar, went into the vehicle she came in and fled the scene. The woman told police the remainder of the rear window glass fell on the child, but he wasn’t injured, as she tried to move it under cover from the rain.

Police went to what was believe to be Jackson’s home, but couldn’t find her. She was later arrested on June 14 when she was found at her residence, the report said. She didn’t deny the allegations against her but said the woman was the one who initiated contact with her.

The report did not state a motive for the assault.
