CINCINNATI, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- A 44-year-old woman is facing an assault charge for allegedly spanking a stranger's son inside a store, Cincinnati police say.

It was not reported what the child said to Ballard prior to the alleged spanking.

Cincinnati police allege Ballard also questioned the mother's parenting.

The identities of the boy and his mother were not reported.
