CUMBERLAND — A Cumberland mom has been charged with assault after she allegedly pushed an 11-year-old boy who was involved in a fight with her son to the ground and kicked him.
Cumberland Police served an Allegany County District Court arrest warrant Tuesday on Traci Ruth Bender, 41. She was charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and two counts of disturbing the peace.
The after-school fight occurred Jan. 17 in the parking lot of a convenience store on Oldtown Road. Officers responded to a complaint made in the 100 block of Race Street concerning the incident.
Bender was released after posting $8,500 bond.
