FRIDLEY, Minn. (AP) — A Fridley mother and her boyfriend are accused of shaving the woman's 12-year-old daughter's head and forcing her to run up and down the street in a diaper.

Police arrived Monday evening to find a crowd of more than 50 people watching the girl as she ran in nothing but a diaper and a tank top.

Officers believe the girl had been outside for about a half-hour before a neighbor alerted police. Police say the girl was "crying and hysterical."

Police arrested the girl's 38-year-old mother and the woman's 34-year-old boyfriend on suspicion of malicious punishment of a child.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the couple told police they were punishing the girl for not bringing home good grades and for failing to do her homework.
