A woman delivering newspapers for the Rutland (Vt.) Herald was assaulted by another woman who does work for the Herald, according to Vermont State Police.

Denise Carr, 58, of Wells, Vt., was assaulted by Kathie J. Beaver, 59, also of Wells, while Carr was delivering newspapers about 3:50 a.m. Dec. 14 to a gasoline station in Wallingford, Vt., police said.
The women knew each other, and the assault occurred when Beaver arrived at the gas station in a separate auto after Carr had arrived, police said.

Beaver was charged with simple assault.

Police said they met with Carr after the incident and she refused medical care at the scene, but that she had sustained bodily injury. Beaver, who had left the scene, was later issued a citation to appear in court, police said. A court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 9 in the Rutland Criminal Division of Vermont Superior Court.
