Latoya Brown came to court on Monday hoping to be exonerated of allegations that she held a 10-year-old boy so her son could hit him.
She left court disappointed.
Brown’s accusers didn’t show up, and the case was rescheduled to Aug. 19.  
“It’s irritating,” Brown said. “They’re making me waste gas and time to come over here for something I didn’t even do.” 
Monday marked the second time the case has been postponed.
“This is crazy,” Brown said. “I’m mad that it didn’t get thrown out. This is the second time I’ve been here for this.”
Brown is charged with assault in an incident that occurred at Courtney Square Apartments in Rockwood on March 20.
According to a police report, Rene T. Lee said she observed Brown push her 10-year-old son down as he was parking his bike.
The report said another woman, Tiffany Laxton, told police, “she did observe Latoya Brown push Dominic down and then grab him by the shirt and hold him so Latoya Brown’s son could hit him.”
Brown denied the allegations following her arrest, and she continued to assert her innocence at the courthouse on Monday.
