A Boynton Beach woman cut her 15-year-old niece with a pocketknife, hit her with a baseball bat and tried to strangle her with a wire Tuesday evening, the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office says.

Allison Nicole Robbins, 38, accused her niece of stealing her jewelry and told the teen she was going to kill her, the teen told sheriff’s investigators. The teen girl locked herself in a bedroom, the arrest report says.

The aunt broke the door down with a baseball bat and hit the teen in the chest, deputies say. The teen tried to fight back, but Robbins pulled out a pocketknife and cut the girl on her arm.

Robbins then grabbed a wire and wrapped it around the girl’s neck until she nearly lost consciousness, the arrest report says.

The teen managed to get away and ran to the home of a neighbor, who called 911. Deputies say the teen had marks on her neck and a cut on her right arm. She was taken to JFK Medical Center for treatment.

Deputies searched the home and found the wire and broken furniture, the report says.

Robbins has been arrested twice in 2014 — the first for several heroin possession charges and the second for grand theft. Adjudication was withheld in both cases, meaning she was placed on probation and served jail time, but she was not formally convicted.

Robbins faces three battery charges and a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon. She remains in the Palm Beach County Jail on $17,000 bond.
