Billings woman Lily Alea Gallegos was arrested and charged with the crime of Assault on a minor and Partner Family Member Assault which was her first offense.
Billings Police Officer Bickford was sent to the address of Long beach Way for what was described as an assault in progress.
The phone call that 911 received, immediately hung up the phone, but the 911 dispatchers heard a mal shouting "don't hit me," and a woman yelling "get out" and "don't make me get a knife."
Several Billings Police responded to the residence on Long Beach Way.
When Officers were able to make contact at the home, a man answered the door with his minor son. Lily Alea Gallegos also came to the door as well.
P.H. (Adult male) and father of the little boy stated to the police officers that Gallegos "beat the shit" out of him and that Lily Alea Gallegos also assaulted his son with a broom handle hitting the little boy multiple times with it.
When Officers talked to Lily Alea Gallegos, she stated that she did hit P.H. and that she and her boyfriend had gotten into a disagreement.
