An Idaho woman, Priscilla Zapata is accused of panel beating four children and shaving off the hairs on the heads of two girls as punishment for eating a tub of ice cream, sources confirms.
26-year-old Priscilla Zapata, is charged with four counts of felony injury to a child for the alleged July 18 incident. According to a probable cause affidavit obtained by PEOPLE, Zapata told her sisters she got angry with the children one night in July when she saw they had eaten the ice cream.
During police questioning, the two female victims explained how Zapata used a wet belt to flog them and the other two boys all over their bodies. One girl said she was hit “everywhere” and was “hurting all day.” She told police Zapata allegedly shoved her face into the ice cream before shaving the heads of her and another girl to make them look like boys.
Another girl told police, Zapata grabbed her by the throat, pinned her against the wall and lifted her off the ground, strangling her. She said she was unable to breathe and “felt like [she] was going to die” and “like [she] was already dead,” the affidavit alleges.
Two boys also had similar bruising and injuries consistent with what the girls reported to police, the affidavit states. Authorities made mention in the affidavit that the girls’ shaved heads caused to physical and emotional abuse.
On Oct. 5, nearly three months after the incident, a warrant was issued for Zapata’s arrest. She is currently in jail in Canyon County Jail.
“When we have serious allegations like these, we don’t ever want to rush the investigation. These things take time to complete,” Joe Decker, Canyon County Sheriff’s Office spokesperson, tells PEOPLE.
