Jutrina Tillman, 32, of Phoenix, was arrested on Christmas for allegedly holding her kids at knifepoint and choking her 5-year-old son.

A Phoenix mom choked her 5-year-old son for playing video games and threatened him and her teenage daughter with a butcher knife on Christmas Day, police say.

Jutrina Tillman, 32, who was arrested after police showed up and interviewed the terrified children, is already under investigation by Child Protective Services on suspicion of abusing her 13-year-old daughter.

Records state that the family fight began about 9 p.m. after Tillman, who'd been drinking all day, became enraged at the boy for playing a video game he'd received as a present. She slammed the game to the floor and dragged the kid to a bedroom.

The woman's young son later told one officer "that his mom put her hand around his throat and squeezed until he thought he was going to fall asleep and closed his eyes," court records say.

Tillman's distraught daughter burst into the bedroom and shoved her. That's when Tillman went to the kitchen and grabbed a six-to-eight-inch knife. She pointed the tip of the knife at the teen's chest and took her cell phone away, records say, screaming that she would kill the girl.



Tillman then turned her attention back to the boy and ran at him with
the knife held high, "screaming she was going to fucking kill him,"
records state.



The kid managed to run out the front door, but Tillman grabbed the boy
around the neck, held the knife to his chest and dragged him back
inside. The girl called 911.



"The 5-year-old told me he was really scared and thought his mom was
going to hurt them really badly," the officer wrote in court paperwork.
The kid also reportedly told police his mom had ordered him to lie to
police or she'd hurt him.



Ah, Christmas memories.



When cops arrived at the home near 43rd and Southern avenues, Tillman tried to hide at a neighbor's house, but the
neighbor wouldn't let her in. She denied everything, saying her kids
were lying.



Police arrested her on suspicion of making threats, aggravated assault and child abuse.

This woman is trying to raise two children.We have no idea what her issues are.Her daughter is defending her because her mother is probably all she has.I think that as a society we should be less judgemental and more supportive.The situation should be assessed and whatever supports that are needed put in place so that this family can do better.Tearing down families and each other adds to the problem.We need to learn to build and strenghten families.A lot of these situations reach a crisis point because people are afraid to ask for help.They are afraid of being judged and afraid of losing their children.If anyone is to blame for ths and so many other situations like it,it is a society that under values families.

I feel so sorry for the little boy. Good for older sis for saving his life. This dumb bitch needs her kids taken away for good. They are probably better off with the dads.

everyone just needs to ignore this person claiming to be this woman's daughter.

this family is obviously fucked. we can only hope that they all get some hardcore counseling so at least the younger ones grow up to be productive members of society rather than a couple of  fucked up adults. if they don't get help, these kids are doomed to repeat the same behaviors as they grow into adulthood, and in turn, fucking up any children they may have in the future.

i wish we could just start sterilizing everyone, but i guess i can only dream.

TNB!  These animals don’t know how to act in public.  The good news is whitey is waking up.  We’re tired of the entitlement mentality, we’re tired of the racist card, we’re tired of the gangs, we’re tired of the rap music full of violent lyrics about “killing whitey”, and we’re tired of our money going to pay for these free-loading animals.  Whitey is getting locked and loaded and, as history has shown, when pushed, we’re volatile.   We can be vicious and, since we’re more intelligent, have better organizational and tactical skills.  We’ve been pushed long enough with the nigger’s mentality of “gib me dis” and “gib me dats”, have endured the constant rant of “racism” by these animals and have seen enough black on white crime to choke an ape (pun intended).   I’m sick of these animals acting like they’re humans and sick of the white bleeding hearts thinking niggers are capable of contributing to society.  Niggers should never be trusted because they chimp-out at the most unexpected times.  They take no responsibility for their actions and defend the crimes of other niggers who are caught red-handed.  Their priorities are so dissimilar to humans;  look at the videos of all the apes pushing and rioting at malls NATIONWIDE over a pair of freakin’ shoes just last week!  It’s beyond understanding for us whites.  Sure, we have white criminals but we persecute and deal with them fairly.  When Casey Anthony was acquitted, white people were up in arms over it but when O.J. was acquitted, the niggers cheered.  They will NEVER conform to our society because they are genetically incapable of it.  They are not only a cancer in America but all over the world.  We must segregate!  Send them back to Africa!  They want to be called “African-American” anyways.  This way, they can drop the hyphen and just be called “ Africans”.

To the family members defending her, it's truly said to see the "ghetto" come out in your posts here...if she is educated, you obviously are not.  She could be a great person, but alcohol changes people and if she was drunk as the article states and choked a damn five year old, she is pretty f-ed up in my opinion.  I would kill someone for hurting my child and to know that poor childs own mother is the one who inflicted pain, fear into him is truly heart breaking.  You guys need to grow up, get educated and take care of the defenseless innocent child...he didn't ask to be born...the least you can do is give him a chance, guide and protect him.  Morons.

You're right.  We don't know the whole story.  We're people just reading a news article that reads pretty badly on Ms. Tillman's part.  So in our defense, as a society in the US, it's really really sad when you read stories like this.  In your defense, we don't know you, your mom, cousin, etc. and we don't know the sutuation.  Best thing you can do, is not read all the negative feedback here and get all worked up.  Just let it go and be with your family in this time and try and make something positive out of this.  I'm actually sorry I even posted here after reading what "1234" wrote.  What's scarier than sad news stories is "1234's" racist views and comments...scray people like that actually exist in this day and age!

Wait, your her daughter? And you are defending her? Defending the mother that held a knife to your chest? Are you saying her behavior is justified because has a education? So, choking your little brother was just a way of saying what? Merry chistmas, now I'm gonna kill you?
