A mother claiming to exorcise demons from her daughter has been charged with allegedly biting, choking and shoving handfuls of sand into the girl's mouth and eyes on a crowded beach, according to The Los Angeles Times.
When police arrived on the scene, they subdued Felder and placed her under arrest.
5 News reports that when Marciel approached Felder, she told him she was trying to remove demons from her daughter and carried on hitting her daughter's head with a piece of driftwood, while he attempted to stop her. Marciel eventually wrestled Felder to the ground, while talking with 911 operators on his phone.
Resident John Marciel couldn't stand by and watch the beating, so he stepped in and restrained Felder, Lt. Ken Swithenbank said.
