My first reaction upon reading the headline was to think "I just had a v strange mental image", and then I read the article and O_O;;
It's TRUE :O
Police are looking for a woman accused of beating a fellow TTC passenger, using a child as a weapon.
Police said the woman boarded the streetcar last Friday around 5 p.m. with the child in a stroller and got into an altercation with another passenger. The woman picked up the child and started hitting the other passenger with the child, police said.
When other passengers intervened, the woman pulled one of them by the hair, police said.
The incident occurred after the woman boarded the streetcar at Dundas St. E. and Parliament St. Police received the call when the streetcar was near Broadview.
The woman got off the streetcar with the child before police arrived.
She is described as being around 30 years old with olive skin, between 5-foot-3 and 5-foot-6, and between 130 and 155 pounds. She has long, straight dark hair past her shoulders, and was wearing a peach button-down shirt with long sleeves, khaki skirt and black shoes.
Holy WTF o_o;; She used the kid as a bat!? >:O That's TERRIBLE! >_<;;
I hope they catch her, both for the assault and for abusing her child >:\ I mean it's bad enuf to attack other passengers, but to use your own child as a weapon? -_-;;
