Troy police say a 41-year-old woman assaulted an 11-year-old girl at a public pool and told her "she would fight her" if she were an adult over text messages.

According to police, it happened on Coachman Dr. on Friday. The 11-year-old girl approached the Troy woman and told her that the woman's daughter shouldn't be sending inappropriate text messages to people.

That's when the woman shoved the girl with both hands and told her she would fight the girl if she were an adult.

According to police, the girl's father wants to seek criminal charges against the suspect for assault and battery.
