“NORTH BRANFORD, Conn. -A 24-year-old Connecticut woman is charged with assaulting a 12-year-old girl.
Police say the 24-year-old woman believed the 12-year-old girl was eyeing her 30-year-old boyfriend.
The Hartford Courant reports that Candice Kiley, of New Haven, was charged Tuesday in connection with the July 23 attack. According to police, Kiley was attending a family birthday party when she grabbed the 12-year-old by the hair and threw her to the floor. Police said the girl then suffered an asthma attack.
Police said Kiley’s boyfriend – did we mention he’s 30? – was in the kitchen cleaning up a spill when the “woman v. girl” confrontation took place.
Kiley was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and risk of injury to a minor.”
How about charging her with felony child abuse?
