Mom stabs her baby
BALTIMORE - Baltimore police say a mother has stabbed her infant daughter in the chest and neck at a social services building.
The 8-month-old baby is listed in stable condition and the mother is in custody.
A police spokesman said the stabbing occurred just before 10 a.m. Tuesday at a Department of Social Services building.
The woman reportedly used a long kitchen knife in the stabbing and will likely be taken for a mental health evaluation.
Detectives and child abuse investigators are continuing to investigate.
Pat Hines, a spokesman for the state Department of Human Resources, says the department hopes the child will be OK but declined further comment because of an ongoing police investigation.
