Woman arrested for injuries to baby

A Dauphin County woman who allegedly dropped her baby on its head during a domestic dispute has been charged with endangering the welfare of the child, police said.

Susquehanna Township police said 23-year-old Courtney Brown was the aggressor in a dispute with the infant's father that turned physical, and her actions led to the child being injured.

The 4-month-old baby was treated at Penn State Hershey Medical Center after it sustained a skull fracture and other injuries during the May 29 incident in the 3800 block of Crooked Hill Road, police said.

The child was later released from the hospital and placed in the custody of other family members, as supervised by Dauphin County Children and Youth Services, police said.
