ST. LOUIS – A St. Louis woman appeared in court Monday morning while her daughter remains in custody for attacking a police officer last week in the city’s Penrose neighborhood.

According to the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department’s probable cause statement, the incident took place just after 6:30 p.m. on May 17 in the 4600 block of Carter Avenue.

Officers initially responded to a disturbance call and learned of a physical altercation between two women. As an officer separated both women, one of their teen daughters ran toward the scene. Police claim this was “an attempt to become involved in another physical altercation.”

The officer took the teen to the ground to handcuff her. Police claim the teen’s mother grabbed the officer from behind to pull him off of her daughter.
