Houston, Texas (The Weekly Vice) - Dilcia Melendez, a 32-year-old Texas woman was jailed after she allegedly tore out her toddler daughter's hair and beat her son with a broom stick.
According to police, an investigation was launched back in February after a witness called police to report that a mother had abused her two small children.
Investigators say Melendez reportedly struck her 4-year-old son repeatedly with a broom stick. She then allegedly pulled chunks of hair from her 3-year-old daughter's scalp. The child was later seen to missing a noticeable amount of hair following the assault.
Melendez also allegedly struck both children repeatedly with a phone cord on more than one occasion according to the arrest report.
She was booked into the Harris County Jail and charged with two counts of felony injury to a child. She is being held on $70,000 bond.
