SALISBURY — A local woman says she was attacked by her two adult daughters when they spit in her face and punched and choked her, according to a Salisbury Police Department report.

The 49-year-old woman went to the Rowan County Magistrate’s Office just after midnight Friday to say her daughters were upset with her and they assaulted her, said Salisbury Police spokesman Russ DeSantis.

The woman arrived at the magistrate’s office upset and said one daughter repeatedly spit in her face and punched her, according to a report. Another daughter allegedly pulled that sister off the mother and began punching and choking her mother.

According to the report, the incident occurred after an argument over colored pencils. The assault occurred late Thursday night around 11:30 p.m. at the home — on North Main Street. No arrest has been made.
