PALM BAY — A 43-year-old woman who police said trespassed into a home and attacked her estranged husband in the shower with a bar of unwrapped soap, will face a judge next month.
Cheryl Ann Lunderman, of the 900 Raleigh Road, was charged with battery and burglary to an occupied dwelling after Palm Bay Police were called to a home located on the 2200 block of Oklahoma Avenue to investigate reports of a disturbance, reports show.
Lunderman, listed by police as a registered nurse, is expected to have a hearing on the charges May 16, records show.
Last week a judge ordered Lunderman not to return to the home or have any further contact with the victim, records show.
Palm Bay Police said the man was home taking a shower about 9:30 p.m. on April 2 when Lunderman got into the residence, walked into the bathroom and struck him in the face with an unwrapped bar of soap.
The man’s right eye was bruised by the soap, investigators said. The couple had been married for over two decades when they separated, officials reported.
Police arrested Lunderman and transported her to the Brevard County Jail Complex.
Police are seeking $134 in investigative costs in the case, reports show.
