UPDATE: Woman arrested for attacking bank employees released on bail


SALEM — Leanne E. Yerian, 35, of Salem, was arraigned Friday morning on several charges stemming from an incident at the Bank of America on North Broadway Thursday.

According to police, Yerian allegedly went on a violent spree of attacking Bank of America employees when they refused to cash her check. She allegedly first picked up a large three-hole punch and hit the manager in the head and then went after her, jumping on her, pulling her hair, slamming her up against a wall, and then strangling her to the point she couldn't speak. Other bank employees heard the commotion and intervened. That's when, police say, Yerian assaulted a second employee, hitting him in the back of the neck and scratching him.

Police say Yerian is not a Bank of America customer, it's unclear if that is the only reason they denied her request to cash a check.

Yerian was released on $25,000 personal recognizance bail and was ordered to stay away from the victims and all Bank of America branches. She must also report to the probation department in Massachusetts where she was arrest for OUI last year.
