Two sisters have turned themselves in to Aurora police on child endangerment charges after allegedly getting into a physical fight while one of the women was carrying an infant.
Rosemary Hill, 33, 400 block of North River Street, Montgomery, and Helen Ramos, 49, 500 block of North Harrison Avenue, Aurora, have both been charged with endangering the life/health of a child following the Aug. 8 incident at Ramos’ home, Aurora police said.
According to Aurora Police Department spokesman Dan Ferrelli, the sisters got into an argument that evening around 6:05 p.m.
Ferrelli said that during the argument, Ramos picked up a 4-month-old infant she was baby sitting. While holding the infant, Ramos allegedly punched Hill in the stomach to get her to move out of a doorway.
Ferrelli said the argument continued into the home’s front yard where Hill pulled Ramos by the hair. That action caused Ramos to fall to the ground and on top of the child she was carrying, Ferrelli said.
Paramedics were called to the scene to check the baby for injuries. The child was treated and released at the scene.
Ferrelli said the Department of Children and Family Services was called to investigate the incident.
Hill turned herself into police on Tuesday. Ramos was arrested on Sept. 2 after turning herself into police on the active warrant.
