A 26-year-old Woonsocket mother faces child abuse charges after neighbors called police to say she was beating a 10-year-old boy and dragging him down a sidewalk.

The Woonsocket Call reported that residents along First Avenue called police to report the incident Saturday night.

Police said witnesses told them the boy was punched in the stomach and legs, and dragged down the street by his arms, legs and ears. They say he suffered cuts and bruises before a group of residents intervened.

Aisha Walters was arrested and charged with second-degree child abuse and disorderly conduct.

Police say she also was wanted on an outstanding warrant for failing to appear in court. She was being held in lieu of bond. The child was released to relatives.
