TRINITY, TX (KTRE) -

During an argument over a man, a woman got angry at a 1-year-old boy she was watching for her friend and hit the child across the face with a belt, according to the Trinity Police Department.

Trinity Police Chief Steven Jones said TPD officers responded to a 911 call about a disturbance between Sangster and another woman at an apartment in the 100 block of Leon Hardy Circle at about 10 p.m. Monday.

When the Trinity PD officers arrived on the scene, they learned that Sangster and a friend were at Sangster's apartment when the friend left to go get McDonald's food. The friend left her two sons, ages 3 and 1, with Sangster.

While the friend was gone, another woman came to the apartment and confronted Sangster about a man, Jones said. In the heat of the moment, Sangster also got mad at the two children for messing up her apartment and hit the 1-year-old across the face with a belt, Jones said. He added alcohol was involved
