WMAR was on hand and caught the entire scene on camera.

As you can see in the video, the kid is wearing all black with a ski mask. His mother grabs him and then slaps him multiple times in the face.

When her son tries to walk away, she grabs him again and appears to be trying to yell some sense into the kid.

On Twitter she is being proclaimed as the mother of the year.

The mother did manage to gain the notice of the Baltimore Police Commissioner Anthony Watt according to WMAR:

“If you saw on one scene, you had one mother who grabbed her child who had a hood on his head and she started smacking him on the head because she was so embarrassed,” Watts said. “I wish I had more parents that took charge of their kids out there tonight.”
