Posted

A Spanaway woman has been convicted for breaking into a Chehalis residence and pointing a gun at one of the occupants in May. 

Alyssa M. Rupp, 28, pleaded guilty to first-degree assault and first-degree burglary on Aug. 25 and has been sentenced to serve 180 months in prison followed by 36 months in community custody. 

Rupp was arrested after breaking into a residence around 5:30 a.m. on May 14 and pointing a semi-automatic pistol at one of the two homeowners who confronted her.

“With the intent to inflict great bodily harm, I did intentionally assault (the victim) with a firearm when I raised the gun towards her while attempting to chamber a round,” said Rupp in her written guilty plea.  

Chehalis police officers who investigated the scene suspected that Rupp hit the magazine release button while she was trying to load the bullets into the chamber, according to court documents.
