Tigard woman pleads not guilty in neighbor’s assault

Lisa Tam is accused of entering apartment, punching caregiver

Tigard Police arrested a woman late last week after she apparently broke into her neighbor’s home and assaulted a woman.

Lisa Tam, 29, is charged with assault, burglary and criminal trespass after she allegedly broke into her neighbor’s apartment in the 9300 block of Southwest Commercial Street.

According to a probable cause affidavit filed in Washington County Circuit Court, the woman’s neighbor has a caregiver who helps with daily tasks. The caregiver was getting ready to leave for the evening when Lam reportedly entered through the apartment’s open front door on Friday, June 13.

The woman reportedly yelled at the caregiver and the neighbor, then pushed and punched the caregiver in the face when she was asked to leave.

The woman then fled the home and went back to her apartment as the pair called 911.

Police found the woman hiding in her shower. She pleaded not guilty in Washington County Circuit Court on Monday.
