Police respond to Dayton Children's Hospital for a three-month old with a brain bleed

UPDATE @ 11:05 p.m.: Police and Montgomery County Children Services are investigating how an infant suffered injuries that prompted her mother to bring her to Dayton Children's Hospital on Thursday morning. 

The mother said her 3-month-old daughter, who was suffering from bleeding on the brain, fell off the couch, according to recordings from county regional dispatch this news organization obtained through a public records request. 

"The doctors are saying that the child's injury don't match the story that was given. So I need an officer to come out," the social worker said on the 9-1-1 call.

The baby was going into surgery Thursday morning when the call from the hospital was made to police. Police were also at the mother's apartment on Thursday. 

Montgomery County Children Services officials said their office had an open investigation into the mother before Thursday's incident. The agency could not confirm how many children live in the home.

Neighbors told News Center 7's John Bedell the infant is the youngest of the children in the home. 

Neighbor Letisha Hardin said she saw police cars at the home Thursday. 

"Yes, when I took my kids to school this morning I noticed it was a couple police cars over there but I didn't know what was going on," Hardin said of the apartment on Elsmere Avenue. 

Hardin said she knows the family. 

"My kids play with their kids and so yeah it is … concerning," she said. "I would hope that nobody would hurt a little child but these days, you never know."

The mother is not being identified by name in this report because no charges have been filed.

An investigation into a vehicle found unoccupied with the engine running on a sidewalk led police to an apartment believed to be used for drug manufacturing, according to a Dayton police incident report. 

Officers patrolling in the 200 block of West Beechwood Avenue in Dayton found a Dodge pickup truck parked over the sidewalk with the engine running around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday.

While checking apartment units for the possible owner of the truck, police found the door to one unit opened with $79 in cash lying on the ground, officers said in the report. There was also a digital scale, which is commonly used to weigh illegal drugs, the report said. 

The officers identified themselves before entering the apartment, but there was no response. Fearing that someone may be injured, they entered the apartment and found additional items that are commonly used for illegals, the report said.
