Girl, 12, arrested for pouring boiling water on friend during sleepover

In an act of unbelievable cruelty, a girl poured boiling water onto the face of an 11-year-old girl attending a Bronx sleepover.

Victim Jamoneisha Merritt suffered second-degree burns to her face and shoulders in the attack early Monday at a home on Findlay Ave. near E. 166th St. in East Concourse, according to the sources.

Jamoneisha, who also lives in East Concourse, was warned not to go to sleep and awoke to her face and chest burning, the sources said. Medics rushed her to Harlem Hospital’s burn unit, according to an NBC 4 report.

According to NY Daily,cops charged a 12-year-old girl with assault later that day. Jamoneisha’s cousin, Yolanda Richardson, told the TV station that she and the older girl had been arguing.

“She told her if she goes to sleep they were going to do something to her,” Richardson told the station.

Jamoneisha’s family won’t yet show the girl how badly her face is burned.
