CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A Cincinnati woman is accused of injuring her nephew at Northgate Mall.

Iiesha Crawley, 18, faces two counts of child endangering after police say caused her nephew to hit his head and get a bloody nose.

Police say Crawley pushed the boy to the ground after he accidentally knocked some food over. The boy hit is face on the ground, causing his nose to bleed. When police arrived, they say Crawley attempted to demonstrate how the incident happened by jerking the boy around and again pushing him to the ground, causing his head to nearly strike a telephone pole.

She was released from jail on her own recognizance and was ordered to stay away from her nephew.
