A local woman who took disciplining her boyfriend’s child to the level of assault has been arrested and charged after an incident involving a hammer.

The accused woman was watching her boyfriend’s two children at his residence in the city’s north end on Sunday, Jun. 16, 2019. Sometime between 7 and 7:30 p.m., one of the children was outside playing and a neighbour notified the accused woman that the child was misbehaving. The accused woman went to the backyard and found the child grabbing for a metal hammer that was attached to the fence. As the accused woman was disciplining the child, she took the hammer from him and proceeded to strike him in the back/upper leg area, according to Kingston Police. The accused woman then drove both children home to their mother’s house.

When the mother of the children learned of the assault, she contacted police. Police responded at approximately 10:20 p.m. and arrested the accused woman at her residence.

The 39-year-old woman was charged with assault with a weapon.
