NEW YORK, May 9 (UPI) -- New York police said they arrested a woman accused of using a cooking pot to strike her child's father when he failed to give her a Mother's Day present.
Investigators said Aretavia Kimbrough, 28, woke boyfriend Charmean Allen, 28, who is the father of Kimbrough's 8-month-old son, at about 7 a.m. Sunday and demanded to know what he had purchased her for Mother's Day, the New York Post reported Monday.
Allen said he tried to explain to Kimbrough, who was holding their son in one arm and a cooking pot in the other, that he was planning to buy her candy and take her out to dinner, but she was not satisfied and struck him in the head with the pot.
Allen, who suffered a 4-inch gash to his head, called a friend for help and the friend dialed 911.
Police described Kimbrough as "crazed-looking."
"I hit him with a pot, and I'm glad I did," she allegedly told police, the report said. "I've been with him for seven years, and he never bought me nothing!"
Allen, who refused a trip to the hospital, told police he did not want to press charges, but Kimbrough was arrested and officers said she is expected to be charged with domestic violence counts.
