SAN DIEGO (KGTV) -- A woman was arrested Wednesday night after police say she hit her neighbor with her SUV in Chollas View.

According to police, the incident happened on the 200 block of 47th Street near the 47th Street Trolley Station around 2 p.m.

Police say the victim, only described as a 50-year-old white man, saw a woman, later identified as Tantrina Spencer-Simmons, 24, beating her 8-year-old sister with a belt.

According to police, the victim confronted Simmons about the beating when she put her younger sister into a white Mitsubishi SUV.

While the victim stood in the parking lot calling police, authorities say Simmons stepped on the gas and “intentionally ran over the male victim.”

Simmons then fled the scene. Police say the victim sustained severe and life-threatening injuries.

Police were able to locate and arrest Simmons on the 4500 block of Market Street around 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.
