WACO -- A Waco woman is in jail for assaulting her boyfriend and abandoning her children in the process.

28-year-old Shakoor Latay Turner was arrested around 5:30 Tuesday morning after police responded to reports of a domestic disturbance.

Investigators say Turner kicked in the door of her boyfriend's apartment and began physically beating him.

After Turner was arrested she told police she had left her children home alone.

"She had left her two children under the age of 10 at home by their selves while she came over to fight the boyfriend. So now not only does she face the burglary of habitation with intent to commit an assault, but two counts of endangering and abandoning a child," said Sgt. Patrick Swanton, Waco P.D.

Officers were able to contact family members to take care of the kids while Turner is in the McLennan County Jail.
