MASON CITY – Police were searching for a woman who allegedly beat another woman for approaching her with concerns about children in a car until the woman turned herself in to police Thursday afternoon.

According to police, at about 2 PM Wednesday, officers responded to a reported assault at the Plaza West parking lot on 4th SW near the Tobacco Outlet store.

A Britt woman – who wished to remain unnamed – had reported to police that she had concerns about children alone in a car.

“I came out from a store to my vehicle with my son and noticed in the car next to me was a little boy approx 2-3 yrs old by himself,” the woman told NIT Thursday.  “The window was down on the passenger side. I asked him if he was ok and he said yes, I asked him if he was hot and he said yes.”

The woman said that she then waited near the car to see if a parent or guardian was coming soon to attend to the child.

She elaborated on what transpired next:

“I asked him where his mommy was. He said in the store. I waited about 4 minutes or so for her to come out of the Tobacco Outlet and asked if it was her car. She replied that it was and I told her she should never leave a child unattended in a vehicle. She replied that she couldn’t take him into the store because you have to be 18. Again I said you shouldn’t leave a child unattended, it’s hot and there are crazy people that could take your child. She came from the drivers side of her car to where I was standing next to my drivers door parked next to her and started screaming at me that she loves her child and for me to shut the F*** up, all the while punching me in my neck and back.”

The woman then fled the scene, driving a 1990 model red Grand Prix or Grand Am.  It did not have license plates at the time of the incident.

“The MCPD were very helpful and compassionate to me. I had surgery on my neck 3 weeks ago and had just come from my post operation appointment,” the victim said.  “She was punching my back but I don’t have bruises that I know of, I’m just sore.”

Please call Mason City Police at 641-421-3636 if witnessed this incident or have other information that could be useful to police.
