A Duson woman was arrested Monday on charges of second degree cruelty to a juvenile after she allegedly injured her 9-month-old daughter.

Captain Kip Judice, Public Information Officer with the Lafayette Parish Sheriff's Office, says 25-year-old Cassidi Davis became frustrated when her daughter would not stop crying after several hours.

"[Davis] twisted the child's leg, causing a spiral fracture of the left femur bone," Judice says.

The girl was taken to a hospital for medical treatment. It was at this point that hospital staff informed police about the incident.

Davis has been booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center.
