Boy, 11, Arrested For Punching Grandmother In Face After She Refused To Buy Him Toy At Department Store

An 11-year-old boy was arrested yesterday for slugging his grandmother in the nose when she refused to buy him a toy at an Ohio department store, according to a police report.

The minor was busted by Dayton cops after a witness called 911 to report an assault in the toy aisle at Rose’s Store. The victim, 60-year-old Barbara Weeks, told investigators that the boy punched her after she would not make the purchase.

Weeks told police that her grandson tried to land a second blow, but she fled from him to escape being hit again.

The child, who was not identified by police, was charged with domestic violence and transported to the Montgomery County Juvenile Justice Center. It is unclear whether the boy was seeking the toy as a Christmas present.
