Candice Kiley *, a 24-year-old woman from New Haven, beat up a 12-year-old girl for eyeing her 30-year-old boyfriend at a family birthday party July 23, according to investigators in Connecticut.
The incident began around 7 or 8 p.m. when Kiley’s boyfriend spilled a drink in the kitchen and the young girl needed to get ice from the refrigerator for her own drink. The girl was waiting for the man to clean up the spill before getting her ice when Kiley walked in.
Kiley then allegedly accused the 12-year-old of looking at her boyfriend, grabbed her hair, and threw her to the floor, North Branford police said. The girl was left with a bump on her head as a result of the incident and also had an asthma attack.
Family members heard the confrontation and went to the 12-year-old’s assistance.
Kiley was charged with third-degree assault, disorderly conduct and risk of injury to a minor.
She is scheduled to appear in court Aug. 23.
