Woman accused of spraying child with pesticide

A 60-year-old California woman is facing child cruelty charges after police say she sprayed a 7-year-old neighbor in the face with a poisonous pesticide.

Officers responded Wednesday to a condominium complex in Grover Beach on the Central Coast following reports of an assault on a young girl.

Investigators determined the child was approached by Julie Wilhelmina Rodenhuis and sprayed with a weed killer. The child was treated at the scene and taken to a hospital.

Police Cmdr. John Peters tells the San Luis Obispo Tribune that the girl is expected to make a full recovery.

Rodenhuis was arrested on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon, battery with serious injury and child endangerment.

Investigators are looking into a motive.

As of Saturday, Rodenhuis remained jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail.

It wasn't immediately known if she has a lawyer.
