Orland Park Landlady Loses It, Batters Tenant & Calls His Wife 'Dirty': Cops
An Orland Park landlady got rough with a tenant and called his wife "dirty," police said.

Maria Zieba, 66, of 9725 Ravinia Court was charged with battering 31-year-old tenant Zuhdi Hamad. Zieba, Hamad and Hamad's wife all live in the same building, police said.

Hamad called the cops on Zieba and told them she stopped by his apartment to "ask him about the tenant across the hall from him," police said.

Things took a vicious turn when Hamad asked his landlady "about getting the stove fixed again," police said, as "that is when Maria pushed Zuhdi with an open hand against his shoulder and forced her way into his apartment," police said.

"Zuhdi stated after she pushed her way in Maria started to call his wife names and called her dirty," according to police, who said that after Hamad "told (Zieba) he was calling the police, Maria left the building."

Zieba admitted to an officer "she was upset and did push Zuhdi so she could enter the apartment to look at the stove," police said.
