A Houston mother is facing charges after she allegedly beat her 12-year-old daughter at school.

Titania LaShay Simon, 31, has been charged with injury to a child. On April 24, the girl told police that her mother came into a classroom on her school campus on Brisbane Street and struck her with a belt. According to court documents, the girl got away and ran from the classroom to the administrative offices. The girl told police that her mother said the assistant principal "could not save her."

Court documents state that once in the assistant principal's office, Simon allegedly beat the girl's head against a wall and kicked her when she fell to the ground. A teacher and a security guard pulled Simon away from the girl.

No bail has been set in the felony case.
