LAS VEGAS, Nevada—Las Vegas police arrested a woman who punched a 6-year-old Korean-American boy in the neck on Saturday, according to AsAmNews.
The woman, now identified as Shelly Hill is being held on battery, hate, and bias crime charges.
The 6-year-old’s mother who asked only to be identified by her TikTok handle @uhmmajo explained it happened during a stroll on 4th of July weekend near the entrance of the Shop at Crystals on the Las Vegas Strip, reports AsAmNews.
“My husband was walking with my son holding his hand. I was with my two-year-old daughter pushing her in a stroller. She (Hill) came from behind and punched my son in the neck,” the mother explained to AsAmNews.
The mother continued to explain her husband grabbed his son and shielded him from the woman while yelling at her. That’s when Hill started yelling back.
