N.Y. Mom Attacked Boyfriend on Mother's Day for Not Buying a Gift
NEW YORK, N.Y. -- “You Mother” -- A New York woman accused of striking her child’s father in the head with a cooking pot when he failed to give her a Mother’s Day gift was arrested Sunday.
New York police said 28-year-old Aretavia Kimbrough woke boyfriend Charnean Allen, 28, at about 7 a.m. Sunday and demanded to know what he purchased her for Mother’s Day, The New York Post reported Monday.
Kimbrough, who was holding the couple’s 8-month-old son in one arm and a cooking pot in the other, allegedly became angered when Allen tried to explain that he had hoped to purchase gifts and take her to dinner, so she struck him on the head with the pot, and then stormed out of the room, Allen said.
The wounded boyfriend left with 4-inch gash to his head said he called a friend on the phone to get help. They then called 911.
When police and emergency services arrived, Allen told them that he did not need to go to the hospital and that he did not want to press charges against Kimbrough.
However, that did not stop police, who arrested the malicious mother, who they say, “looked crazed.”
“I hit him with a pot, and I'm glad I did," she allegedly told police, the report said. "I've been with him for seven years, and he never bought me nothing!"
Allen told the Post that he had planned to buy her balloons and take her out for dinner but was unable to because the police would not release her.
With his head still wrapped in bandages, Allen added, "She has a little bit of a temper, I'd say. This is probably the end for us. But I'll take care of my kid."
Kimbrough was expected to be arraigned on domestic-violence charges Monday, law-enforcement sources said.
