(AP) A woman wearing a cast on her foot has been charged with assault for allegedly kicking an 8-year-old girl and police officers. City police say they found the 32-year-old woman hiding under a bed in an apartment as they investigated a neighbor's complaint about a child being assaulted Monday.
Police said that when they pulled the woman out from under the bed, she kicked a sergeant and some officers.
Authorities said the girl told them that the suspect kicked her and threw her into a bedroom dresser, causing bruises on her legs and back.
The woman was charged with assaulting police officers, assaulting the child and other crimes.
She was arraigned Tuesday at New Britain Superior Court, and her case was continued to Dec. 11.
