HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) A 47-year-old woman remains behind bars Tuesday morning after Horry County officers say she became physical with a child at his middle school and refused to let him in her home that night.

According to a police report obtained by WMBF News, officers with the Horry County Police Department were told of a disturbance between Djuan Yvette Holland and a 13-year-old student at Ocean Bay Middle School.

Holland and the teen were in the main office on Thursday when Holland attempted to correct the teen for being disrespectful toward the staff at Ocean Bay Middle, the report said. Holland then allegedly grabbed the teen around his neck area and clothes and pushed him against the wall in a hallway, which was reported to have been captured on video surveillance.

The report further stated Holland then left the teen and another student in the parking lot and would not give them a ride. The students were then seen walking down the road.

Officers were told that the teen was not allowed at Holland's home that night and when he went to the house around 11 p.m., Holland allegedly told him to leave or she would call 911.

Friday, officers spoke with Holland and asked her about the incidents. She allegedly admitted to leaving the teen in the parking lot as well as not allowing him in her home. According to the report, officers spoke with the teen who said he was okay.

Monday, Holland met with officers at Ocean Bay Middle and was placed under arrest for cruelty to children. Bond has not yet been set at this time, according to records with the J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
