Police said a North Carolina woman threw her one-year-old to the ground after her neighbor refused to give her a beer, reports said Sunday.

Kyesha Sherell Willis, 29, is facing charges of assault on a child under the age of 12, simple assault and resist, delay and obstruct, reports said. On Saturday, police officers were called to an apartment complex at 2016 Morningside Drive at about 4:30 p.m. EDT where they said Willis went to visit her neighbor along with her child.

Willis demanded her neighbor to give her beer but when she didn’t get what she asked for, Willis became angry, threw her child to the ground and allegedly assaulted the neighbor, the police added.

Alamance County Department of Social Services was contacted after the incident and the child was placed in the custody of a grandmother, according to a report on Fox 8. Reports said the child did not have any lasting injuries. No other details about the child or the neighbor were available at the time of this report. It was not made clear if Willis had an attorney who could comment on her behalf.

Willis was arrested, and jailed under a secured bond of $5,000.

In an unrelated incident, a woman from Peoria, Arizona, was sentenced to 20 years in prison Friday for abusing her two adopted daughters, according to Maricopa County Superior Court officials.

The woman, 57-year-old Kimery Jorg, pleaded guilty to two counts of child abuse.

According to reports, the two girls, 11 and 13 years old, were beaten with a wooden paddle, forced to repeatedly write down Bible verses and to drink apple cider vinegar, and were made to sleep on a towel on the floor or outside, the police said.

According to court records, her husband, Johann Jorg, 65, told employees at the Southwest Behavioral Health & Services in 2014 that they used such tactics to punish the children for “stealing and lying.” The Arizona Department of Child Safety was notified of the incident, and they contacted the Peoria police, leading to the arrest of the couple. Officials said the girls were malnourished and had varying injuries on their feet and buttocks when they were rescued.

The 11-year-old slept inside the house on a towel as she was in “prison” while the 13-year-old who was in “deep prison” was made to stay outside in a tent, reported AZCentral. It added the children were forced to use a bucket outside to relieve themselves.

There were two other, younger, adopted children living in the house as well. Reports said they were not abused by the couple.

In 2015, Johann was sentenced to 14 years in prison after pleading guilty to the charges. Kimery will be placed on lifetime probation after her sentence is completed, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge John Hannah said.
