Rebecca Gonzales, 27

PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) – A Phoenix woman is facing charges after punching her 7-year-old son for being a bad lookout for his shoplifting grandmother, according to court documents.

Officers saw 27-year-old Rebecca Gonzales walk into the parking lot of the Walmart Supercenter at 75th Avenue and Lower Buckeye Road Friday evening, documents said. Police say she spanked the little boy, then slapped and punched him in the face.

“According to the child, he was hit because he didn’t watch out for his grandma good enough,” the arresting officers wrote in their probable cause for arrest statement.

Gonzales was booked on suspicion of aggravated assault. A judge set a secured appearance bond of $2,500. If she posts bond, she is not allowed to have any contact with her son.

Gonzales is due back in court for a preliminary hearing on April 30.

A mother's love


The "rich cultural heritage" is in full effect!!!!


So, what happened to Grandma?


Let me guess...the family is on welfare, food stamps, section 8 housing, etc. Such a fine example they're setting for the children.


And most likely illegal.


I read the headline of this article and clicked on it just to say I knew it was in the West Valley. Typical low-life losers in the West Valley, the stain and blight of Arizona. What an embarrassment they are to the state of Arizona... people in the West Valley need to get some act right.


What do you suggest? What are you doing to help?


Help with what?


JustSaying - lol "Help with what?". That was good. 🌝


Build the wall


newsman - So far bringing it to the surface, exposing it. And you, what are you doing to remedy the I'll the plague the West Valley?


newsman - * ills that plague the West Valley


Wow, how lucky you are to know and understand each human in the west valley! It seems like you have a complete and unbiased perspective on the lives of each west valley resident. In that case, I think you COULD and SHOULD be doing more to help them all acquire some “act right”. Bringing it to light? That’s child’s play! You know every single person in the west valley is a low life loser and why, right? So why not use that knowledge to remedy the issue so it will no longer but such a smudge on the beautiful face of state of Arizona! Much love, Papí!
