She faces charges of felony assault, felony criminal mischief, and driving under the influence. It remains unclear whether Rancuret has obtained legal representation.

The incident left a 45-year-old man with minor injuries, according to police reports.

Requests for additional information regarding the specific religious group targeted and Rancuret’s purported motives have not been addressed by a police spokesperson.
