A disability support worker grabbed her neighbour through a gate and pulled ‘hair from her skull’ following an early morning noise complaint.

Kerry-Jane Dent, 47, pleaded guilty to trespass and assault occasioning bodily harm in company after the incident at Logan Village, south of Brisbane, on March 8.

Police were called to Dent’s property at about 2.30am following reports a man and a woman had been shouting, Quest Newspapers reported.

Beenleigh Magistrates Court heard the mother-of-four was ‘grossly intoxicated’ and ‘barely able to converse’.

She told police: ‘That w***e next door made the complaint, I’m going to smash her’.

At about 4am, the victim woke to noise out the front of her home and when she went to investigate the disruption she found Dent and another person.

The woman walked to her front gate and told Dent and her companion to leave the premises.

She was standing about one-metre from the gate when Dent reached through and pulled the victim into it.

Dent then pushed her neighbour to the ground and pulled strands of hair from the victim’s skull.

Dent’s daughter arrived at the scene and pleaded with her mum to go home, while the victim’s son came out of the home and tried to break up the scuffle.

He pushed Dent away from the barrier and the 47-year-old fell backwards.
