GULFPORT, Miss. (AP) - Police in Gulfport say a 32-year-old woman was arrested after her child was injured during a confrontation between the woman and her boyfriend.

Investigators tell The Sun Herald (https://bit.ly/1nKNPWv ) Lakisha Barry was arrested Monday.

Sgt. Damon McDaniel says investigators believe Barry and her boyfriend were arguing at the family’s apartment home when Barry thrust a knife at the boyfriend. The child was cut around an eye, McDaniel says.

McDaniel says the boyfriend took the child to a hospital for treatment. The child’s injury was not believed to be life-threatening.

Barry was booked at the Harrison County jail with child battery.

It was not immediately clear whether she has an attorney.
