MESA, Ariz. - An Arizona mom was arrested after assaulting a teenage boy who she said she caught in bed with her teenage daughter.

According to court documents, 36-year-old Jeanette Woods, of Mesa, was arrested Dec. 11 after she found a 16-year-old boy asleep in bed with her daughter, who is also 16.

Mesa police say that around 1 a.m. on Thanksgiving, the victim was awoken by Woods punching him in the face.

Woods straddled the victim on the bed while striking him throughout his face and body. The victim managed to free himself, fleeing the room with only his jeans.

Once on the street, Woods continued her assault, only stopping after she threatened to have her cousins "take care of him."

The victim's car was later found down the street from the woman's home badly damaged. Woods had moved the car from the front of her house after taking a baseball bat to it and causing $5,300 worth of damage.

Police found the bat the woman used during the assault, and they also found broken glass in front of the woman's home.

Woods is facing charges of criminal damage, assault and car theft.
