A 45 year old Kingston woman is facing several charges in connection with alleged assaults on her children.
Police began an investigation Wednesday into incidents involving three children aged 9 to 17 years.
Investigators say the violence dates back to the summer of 2016.
The accused allegedly slapped or hit the children in the face and in one instance struck one child hard enough with a hair brush to leave a mark.
A man who was living at the home was grabbed by the throat when he tried to intervene.
An arrest was made Wednesday night.
The unidentified woman is charged with assault with a weapon and four counts of assault.
