We are learning more about the alleged victim in an assault case involving a high ranking Fort Carson soldier.
Command Sergeant Major Jerry Lambert was arrested over the weekend, for allegedly beating up a woman who is in her 80s.
Lambert is part of the 10th Special Forces Group at Fort Carson.
According to court documents obtained by 11 News, the alleged victim is Lambert's 82-year-old mother-in-law. She is reportedly in a wheel chair and has dementia.
Police say the attack happened at a home on Crestview Way in Woodland Park.
Court papers show that Lambert's daughter called 911 on Saturday, and told police she heard her dad screaming at her grandma.
The daughter reportedly told police she saw her dad shove her grandma into the kitchen table several times.
Police say the girl pushed her dad away and told him to stop before calling police.
When police arrived at the house, they found the alleged victim in a recliner, reportedly bleeding from her mouth and both of her wrists.
According to court papers, Lambert was sitting across from the alleged victim when police arrived, and he refused to cooperate with them.
He was arrested,and has been charged with third degree assault, child abuse, and crimes against at-risk adults.
If he posts his $1,000 bond, his unit wouldn't tell us if he'll report to work or not.
He is scheduled to be in court next month in Teller County. You can trust 11 News to let you know what happens.
