LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Fairdale mother is accused of assaulting a woman during a dispute about the suspect's son.

The victim told police that Laurie M. Allen, 38, became frustrated with Allen's son while he did his homework. The victim said she tried to help the child, but her attempts only made Allen madder. According to an arrest report, Allen then yanked the boy up by his arm and dragged him to the kitchen sink so he could take his medicine.

The victim said the boy soon ran into her room, and his mother dragged him out. The victim said she then tried to calm Allen down as Allen walked out of the room, but Allen slammed the door on the victim's arm multiple times and threatened to break off her arm.

The victim told police Allen is undergoing counseling for anger issues.

Allen is charged with 4th degree assault.
