Then, Valles allegedly slapped the girl twice, threw her to the ground and kicked her in the stomach. The woman interfered, and Valles is accused of punching the woman, threatening her with a pocket knife and cutting her forearm shortly afterward.
Police said the woman took the toddler to a neighbor's house, where she called 911. Officers detained Valles, who was hiding behind a neighbor's car, without incident. The woman and child were treated at the scene, police said.
It's so good to see a woman not stand by and let her kid be abused. Let's pray she's not dumb enough to give him any more chances (and that CPS makes sure she knows the choice is him or the kid).
Gotta say, though, that if Erik did anything like that (not that he would; he's amazingly gentle), they'd still be collecting pieces.
