Woman takes a bat to boy on bike who hit her


A South Side woman was arrested for felonious assault and a 14-year-old boy was cited for assault after police said the two hit each other about 5:30 p.m. Friday on a South Side street.

Police were called to Mabel Avenue for a report of a woman with a baseball bat. The juvenile told police he was riding his bike when the woman pulled up in her car and yelled an obscenity at him. The boy then punched her in the face, reports said.

Stephanie Brown, 32, then hit the boy in the leg with a bat, reports said. The boy was cited for assault because he admitted to hitting Brown and was released to his mother, reports said. Brown was arrested on a charge of felonious assault and taken to the Mahoning County jail. She told police the boy’s family had been harassing her all summer.

Just some good old fashion justice in the hood.

Why do I think she didn't have the bat in her car because she was heading to a Little League game....

Let's see . . . the li'l angel was riding his bike, not bothering anybody, when all of a sudden this woman took it upon herself to pull up next to him in her car and shout "an obscenity" at him. And the innocent youth's reaction to that? He punched her in the face.

She should have swung for his head, not his leg. Maybe she could have knocked some sense into the little thug's thick head.
