A 24-year-old Orangeburg woman is accused of striking her mother with a metal broom handle in a rent dispute.
The 24-year-old is facing a misdemeanor charge of second-degree assault and battery. She was taken into custody Sunday.
A warrant alleges the incident occurred on April 11 when the 24-year-old’s father told her she needs to move out or pay rent.
The mother claimed her daughter “became enraged.”
The mother had “visible injuries and swelling on her right and left arms,” the warrant states.
Orangeburg County EMS transported the mother to the Regional Medical Center for treatment.
