MOUNT AIRY, OH (FOX19) - A mother is facing child endangering charges after police say she beat her child with a belt.
Asha Royal, 25, was arrested Thursday and released from jail Friday.
Royal's 7-year-old and 7-month-old are in protective custody following the incident, according to Hamilton County Job and Family Services.
Residents like Michael Kamua say nothing justifies purposefully hurting a child.
"Anybody can have a bad day but you don't take it out on your child, not like that. There are other ways to do it," said Kamua.
A court date for Royal has not yet been set.
