A Rock Hill woman faces child neglect and assault charges after officers found her 3-year-old daughter wandering around the Brittany Place apartment complex for the second time in two months this weekend.

A police report says that Saturday afternoon authorities were called to the Brittany Place apartment complex and found 3-year-old Aubrey Duncan in the pool area of the complex. Her mother, 23-year-old Megan Moore was inside her apartment.

Moore was arrested on child neglect charges, and while she was being booked at the law center, the report says Moore became combative and kicked one officer in the face and groin, leading to additional charges of assault and battery.

The child was released to her grandmother.
