A Texas woman was being questioned in connection to an assault on her grandparents when she died to kick her child in the head — right in front of police.
That is what the Bexar County Sheriff’s Office said happened as they spoke to April Leia Raymond last week.
Deputies responded to a home after a woman, Raymond, was threatening her grandparents with a knife. When deputies arrived, they found Raymond in the front yard holding her 5-year-old child, according to the sheriff’s office.
As a deputy spoke to her, Raymond shoved the officer in the chest, according to the sheriff’s office.
The deputy told her to put the child down, but she refused, the office noted. Another deputy took the child, but Raymond then kicked the 5-year-old in the head. The child was not seriously hurt.
Raymond then fought with the deputies, biting one hard enough to draw blood, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies used a Taser to get Raymond to stop and she was arrested. She now faces several charges, including second-degree battery on a police officer, assault on a family member and resisting arrest.
