Lancaster County deputies arrested a Hickman woman Thursday for hitting her 4-year-old daughter in the face with a belt.
Angela Strong, 31, was lodged in jail for felony child abuse.
LSO said Strong got mad at her daughter for taking two packs of gum out of her purse. The mom then asked her daughter if she wanted her to hit her face or butt, to which the little girl said "neither". Strong then hit her daughter's face once and butt four times.
When Strong's roommate returned home she saw the marks and asked what had happened. Strong told her and her roommate called 911 right away.
