When they arrived, a 21-year-old woman told police she had come to the home to visit her 3-year-old son.

"While there Tristen LaPointe, who is the father of the child, got upset with the victim and while she was holding her son he hit her on the left side of the face and bottom lip, knocking her to the ground," Sheriff Branham says.
