Two women have been arrested in Texas after allegedly beating a 12-year-old student with what “looked like baseball bats” as retaliation for an argument the girl reportedly had with a classmate to whom the women were related.
Kyhirah Clemons and Chonda Edmond were taken into custody Saturday following the alleged incident at Killeen High School on June 12, KWTX reported. They both are facing a felony charge of injury to a child and are being held on $100,000 bond.
The station, citing an arrest affidavit, says the victim told police she got into a dispute that day with a student at Killeen Middle School. It added that when the student’s mother, identified in the affidavit as Edmond, came to pick the classmate up, an altercation ensued.
