Relative unease

Cops were called to a Mill Street home in Red Hook after a young woman struck her mother in the head with a frying pan.

Officials said that the 21-year-old was arguing with the family matriarch at 3:20 p.m. on January 2 when she picked up the pan and started swinging.

Her mother reportedly lost a tooth after the pan, which was on a stove burner, struck her square in the face. The woman also suffered a burn to her leg when the pan struck her there.

Cops took the 21-year-old into custody without incident, charging her with assault. Her mother was taken to Long Island College Hospital for treatment.
