Authorities charged a 30 year old Montgomery woman with third degree assault for injuring a four year child with a leather belt. Kandi Brooks is charged with assault for an incident Friday night. Police say the boy's mother left the child and a 6 year old in Brooks care. Police tell WSFA 12 News, when the mother returned she found the four year had bruise marks on his face and back.

Both children told investigators Brooks hit the child with the belt because he had mentioned something about a shot house. The mother then signed a warrant against Brooks, she is now free on bond.
