PHOENIX (AP) - A Phoenix woman is being accused of child abuse after allegedly hitting her daughters with an electrical cord.

Phoenix police say 46-year-old Denisa Renee Simpson was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of two counts of child abuse.

It wasn’t immediately clear Thursday if she has a lawyer.

A police report says Simpson’s 10-year-old daughter came to school Monday with a “closed-end loop mark on her left cheek.”

The student told school officials the injury was caused when her mother hit her with an extension cord and a belt.

Police say the girl also had multiple linear marks to her back, right arm and hand, and her cheek.

The girl’s 9-year-old sister also told school officials her mother had hit her with an extension cord and she had bruises on her back.
