A Lubbock County woman was arrested this week, accused of punching her 5-year-old daughter in the mouth.
Court records say Sarah Flores is a relatively new resident of southeast Lubbock County.
Teachers with Slaton ISD noticed that Flores' daughter was missing two bottom teeth.
The girl told teachers and investigators that her mom had punched her.
Flores told officials that the girl fell, but sheriff's deputies were not convinced of that story so they pressed charges.
Flores was able to post bond to get out of jail.
A separate CPS investigation has also been requested.
