Woman’s bail increased in felony
Bail was set at $20,000 for a 22-year-old woman who allegedly forced her way into a Village Way apartment she was prohibited from visiting.
Mairo Alejandra Zermeno-Barajas was arrested Saturday morning on charges of home invasion and possession of a dangerous drug without a prescription.
She appeared in East Fork Justice Court on Monday where attorney Brian Filter was appointed to defend her.
According to the report, she knocked on the door and when the victim opened it, she pushed her way in and knocked the woman down. She’s accused of grabbing a car seat and her child, who is the subject of a custody case, and walking out. The victim called 911 and deputies intercepted Zermeno-Barajas in the parking lot of the apartments’ parking lot.
In setting bail, East Fork Justice of the Peace Cassandra Jones ruled that Zermeno-Barajas poses a direct risk to the community.
