An Auburn woman is facing several charges after she allegedly broke into a person's home and damaged multiple items.

The Auburn Police Department said Caroline J. Clark, of 18 Howard St., was arrested around 2 a.m. Thursday after two domestic incidents involving the same victim that day.

Police Chief Shawn Butler said that during the first incident, Clark is accused of striking an individual numerous times with a closed fist. She then allegedly threw a chair through a glass pane in a front door. Later that evening, Butler said the 30-year-old unlawfully entered the victim's home and damaged a television, a lamp, and sprayed mustard on the carpet and numerous pieces of clothing.

Police charged Clark with second-degree burglary, a class C felony. She was also charged with two counts of fourth-degree criminal mischief, which are misdemeanors, and second-degree harassment, a violation.

Clark was arraigned Thursday in Auburn City Court and released on her own recognizance. She is scheduled to appear in court for a pre-trial conference at 10:15 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 10.
