A 30-year-old woman and her 64-year-old mother were arrested by Sumter County sheriff’s deputies Friday evening in the Village of De La Vista.

Amanda Carroll Burgess, who lists an address on Hildalgo Drive as her residence, is facing charges of battery and two felony charges of kidnap-false imprisonment.

The mother, 64-year-old Catherine Mitrakos, who has been sharing her Villages home with her two daughters and grandchildren, is facing a charge of aggravated assault with a weapon.

At 7:32 p.m. deputies arrived at the residence after a 10-year-old called law enforcement. Mitrakos is accused of throwing a cup of coffee at the child and ordering the child to hang up.

Burgess is accused of putting her arms around her sister, pushing her against a washing machine and preventing her from leaving the residence.

Burgess and the other sister also had struggled over a 4-year-old child, according to the arrest report.

Burgess and Mitrakos were booked without bond at the Sumter County Detention Center.
