PELHAM, N.Y. Pelham police officers reported to a Fifth Avenue apartment building on Sunday at 11:20 a.m. because of a domestic dispute. Upon arrival, an officer spoke with a nurse from the Visiting Nurses of Westchester County who said her patient was suffering from cardiac and mental health conditions.
The officer observed the victim coddling her 3-week-old baby saying, Im not giving my son to my mother. She proceeded to tell the officers that she was in a verbal dispute with her mother because she refused to allow the father of the victims child inside the apartment due to an ongoing Child Protective Services case. The case involves a court order of protection involving their 6-year-old daughter who was not present.
According to police, it was later found out that the father was not permitted to have custody or possession of the child. He was informed of that and fully cooperative and aware of the current ongoing process with CPS. He left the building without incident prior to the victim leaving the apartment with EMS personnel. The desk officer at the Pelham Police Headquarters called the ER staff at Lawrence Hospital via telephone of the current situation just in case he arrived.
The officer attempted to contact the CPS assigned caseworker, but gave up after several attempts. The nurse later said that she contacted CPS and spoke with someone regarding the current circumstances. A New York state domestic incident report was filled out by an officer and there is no further police action at this time.
