Police investigate baby's injuries

February 22, 2011

Indianapolis Metropolitan police are investigating how a 5-month-old girl suffered serious injuries to her body, including burns and broken bones. The baby was first taken to St. Francis Hospital in Beech Grove on Saturday night, but her injuries were so severe that she was transferred to Riley Hospital for Children. Residents in the Southgreen Apartments complex on the south side were told that the abuse appeared to have happened between Feb. 16-19 while the child was in the care of one of the residents. The baby’s 19-year-old mother declined an interview request from Fox59.
