Woman drove into Old Navy’s doors at Metroplex in Plymouth Meeting

If you were at the Metroplex in Plymouth Meeting on Monday, June 20th in the late afternoon you may have witnessed someone drive a car into the front door of Old Navy.

In the police complaint, the investigating officer found that a 22-year-old Norristown woman had attempted to strike her mother with the vehicle before going up onto the curb and hitting the building. The mother and a passerby were slightly struck by the vehicle.

The mother told the police that her daughter has a history of mental illness. Due to that, we aren’t sharing her name, but she has been charged with four felonies and four misdemeanors in connection to this incident.

The arresting officer filed a 302, which is when someone is sent for an evaluation to determine if they need to be admitted for involuntary psychiatric in-patient treatment.
