The victim suffered visible injuries and was transported to a local area hospital for treatment. Romeo and the juvenile were later located and detained. 

Romeo was arrested and booked into the county jail where she remains in custody on $50,000 facing felony assault charges. Her arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon. The juvenile was taken into custody then issued a citation and released to a relative.
