According to a police report, officers came to the home on Lafayette Street Monday evening and met the woman who said her five kids had been fighting all day.

She was particularly frustrated with her 15-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter.

"Arrest them both — I can't take this anymore," she said.

Police ended up issuing summonses to the 15-year-old for hitting his 8-year-old sister.

Officers also notified the Department of Children and Families about the situation in the home.
