WICKENBURG, AZ — A woman was arrested in Wickenburg on Saturday, December 26, accused of assaulting three children, according to court paperwork.

Police say the reporting party told them that Sarah Boone assaulted the children because they had tested positive for COVID-19 and were not wearing their masks.

The reporting party allegedly told police that Boone hit one of the children in the face, kicked another child while they were on the ground, and picked the third child up by their neck.

Police have not said the extent of their injuries or given the ages of the children.

Boone allegedly left the home after police were called and she was later found walking down the street by officers.

Boone allegedly refused to cooperate and kept walking, ignoring instructions from the police. Officers then reportedly used a Taser on Boone to take her into custody after she continued to not cooperate.

Court paperwork shows Boone has a past history of domestic violence, including with children involved.

Boone was arrested and potentially faces three counts of child abuse, resisting arrest, assault, and disorderly conduct.
