A woman armed with a “small folding knife” entered a Southold house Thursday night and attempted to attack a man there, all while a child was nearby, according to criminal charges filed against her.
The woman — 55-year-old Jeanne Caufield of Southold — has been charged with felony burglary, as well as misdemeanor criminal possession of a weapon and endangering the welfare of a child, Southold Town police said.
She’s accused of “unlawfully entering” the home about 8:40 p.m. “with the intent of assaulting [the victim],” according to a criminal complaint filed in Southold Town Justice Court.

Police declined to comment further on the incident.

She is due back in court on Tuesday.
