A 2-month-old infant was flown to Hershey Medical Center Tuesday after a domestic incident involving two women, according to Silver Spring Township police.
Police said Cheryl Woermann, 38, was reportedly holding the infant as she punched and kicked a 67-year-old Mechanicsburg woman. Police were called to an address in the first block of South Locust Lane at 2:42 p.m. and learned that Woermann left in a vehicle with the infant before they arrived, they said.
Woermann, who was later located in Camp Hill and arrested, did not use a proper child restraint system in the vehicle, police said, and the infant was placed in the custody of Cumberland County Child and Youth Services.
While a case worker was transporting the infant, police said, the infant “became unresponsive” and was flown to the hospital by Life Lion. Police said a hospital spokesman reported that the infant’s condition had improved and was in stable condition as of noon Wednesday.
Woermann was charged with simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and harassment. Her bail was set at $250,000, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled before Magisterial District Judge Thomas Placey on Sept. 16.
