Myrtle Beach woman charged with assaulting boy

A Myrtle Beach woman was charged with unlawful conduct toward a child early Friday after an elementary school child reported being hurt by the woman, according to a police report.

Kima Joi Michelle Anderson, 33, was charged Friday with unlawful conduct toward a child, according to Myrtle Beach police.

A report filed Wednesday showed that the child, whose age was not listed, went to the office of the school nurse after getting off a bus to report his arm was injured before school. The boy told school officials that Anderson got upset, punched him and stomped on his arm after he woke up late for school.

The boy said he was getting dressed and Anderson became angry because he had lost his house key, according to the report. The boy said another person living in the house stopped Anderson from hitting him and he ran out of the house to the school bus stop.

The boy was taken into emergency protective custody and examined at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center for his injuries.
