York woman accused of hitting teen, 13

Police arrested a York woman for allegedly hitting a 13-year-old boy, according to a York Police report.

Police on Sunday went to a home off Hudson Street to investigate reports of a child being shot with a BB gun, the report states.

While there, the 13-year-old victim told police he had been attacked by a woman who slapped him on the face shortly before police arrived. Police questioned the woman, age 24, and she admitted to hitting the child because he wouldn’t stop arguing with her, the report states. She was charged with assault.

Police did not disclose the boy’s relationship to the woman.

During the investigation, police determined another teen, age 18, had shot the 13-year-old earlier in the day during an unrelated encounter. He was not seriously injured. Police are still investigating that incident.
