LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Police in suburban Atlanta say they have arrested a woman accused of attacking another woman with an American flag.

A Lawrenceville Police Department incident report released Thursday says 30-year-old Amina Ali Ahra walked up to Dami Arno’s home and removed the flag, mounted on 4-foot long PVC pipe, from the mailbox. The report says Ahra, wearing a head scarf that showed only her eyes, approached Arno in a “threatening manner,” swinging and hitting Arno with the flag and pole.

The report says Arno’s two children tried to help their mother during the Tuesday attack.

Ahra is being held at the Gwinnett County jail, charged with simple battery. It’s unclear if she has an attorney.

A call to Arno was not immediately returned.

Police don’t know the motive of the attack.
