Farmington police took the child abuse complaint Feb. 19. The girl told police that on Jan. 15 Alegra Devonia Davis had “whopped” her five or six times with the stick and told the girl not to tell anyone. The girl had been hit on both her arms and her legs. The girl told police Davis had gotten upset when she popped Davis’ air mattress bed.

"This case appears to be a type of hazing incident associated with homecoming activities," Dakota County Attorney James Backstrom said.
