Troy police are investigating a confrontation between an 11-year-old girl and a 41-year-old woman that allegedly turned physical on Friday.

The confrontation took place on the 500 block of Coachman, which is south of Interstate 75 and east of Livernois. 

Police were told that the 11-year-old girl approached the woman at the pool and told her that her daughter "shouldn't be sending inappropriate text messages." The girl alleges that the woman then shoved her with both hands and said she'd fight the girl if she were an adult.

Police learned of the incident when the girl and her father came to the police department to report it, said Sgt. Meghan Lehman, a spokeswoman for Troy police. They have yet to talk to the woman alleged to have done the shoving.

The father of the girl has expressed interest in seeking criminal charges for assault and battery against the woman.
