Mom arrested for beating child with wooden board
BATON ROUGE – Police have arrested a mother after she allegedly beat her son with a wooden board.
Baton Rouge Police were dispatched to the 4900 block of Hammond Street on Sunday, Oct. 30 when a boy told officers that his mother, 40-year-old Liza Joseph, beat him after she got impatient with him because he was taking too long to put old bicycle tires in the trash.
The boy said that Joseph came outside, yelling at him, picked up a wooden board about two and half feet long and struck him on the buttocks, knocking him to the ground. The boy told police that once he was on the ground, Joseph stood over him, pinned him down and punched him several times on both sides of his face.
Joseph, when questioned, admitted to the attacks, but denied hitting the boy with the board.
Joseph was arrested on cruelty to juvenile charges.
