Police: Woman Beat Boyfriend Unconscious With 2-Week Old Baby Strapped To Her Chest
SEATTLE (CBS Seattle) — A Seattle woman is accused of beating her child’s father into unconsciousness while the newborn baby was strapped to her chest.
According to the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, police say Sharee Seminole, 25, brutally beat her boyfriend following an argument on Jan. 6.
Seattle detectives told the court that Seminole, who weighs 270 pounds, threw her boyfriend down to the ground, repeatedly stomping him in the face, breaking his nose and leaving him unconscious, all while having her 2-week old baby strapped to her chest.
The Post-Intelligencer reports that Seminole was arrested at a nearby convenience store after she bought a bag of Funyuns.
When police tried to arrest her, Seminole reportedly refused to cooperate and began to bite and kick authorities.
“Two officers started to escort her to a patrol car but she immediately stiffened and grabbed the baby carrier,” a Seattle detective told the court, according to the Post-Intelligencer. “Fearing for the safety of the baby, officers tried to free the baby but Seminole put up a huge fight.”
The boyfriend suffered a broken and displaced nose and multiple facial injuries in the attack.
The paper reports that newborn has been taken into protective custody.
Seminole has been charged with second-degree assault.
