CLEVELAND (AP) – Police in Cleveland say a 3-year-old girl was found stabbed in the abdomen at a home, and her mother has been arrested.
Cleveland police arrested 27-year-old Tiarra Johnson on Sunday night on suspicion of felonious assault and child endangering. She hadn’t been charged by Monday morning but remained in custody.
Police say her daughter, A’mora Johnson, underwent surgery at a hospital and is recovering.
A Cleveland police spokeswoman says officers went to Johnson’s home Sunday after receiving a report of possible child abuse. Police say Tiarra Johnson kicked the door out at officers when they arrived. The officers then found the injured girl inside the home.
