The Sheriff’s Office arrested a Baton Rouge woman accused of throwing her 8-month-old daughter into her crib Friday evening during an argument with her husband.
The woman’s husband called deputies around 6:20 p.m. to report that his wife Ghufran Alrayhawee, 22, had picked up their child and thrown her into the child’s crib saying, “She wished they never had her and that she was going to kill her,” the East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office police report says. The husband told police their daughter bounced and hit the side railing.
Fearing for the child’s safety, he told police, he dragged his wife out of the house and locked her out. When officers arrived, Alrayhawee was still outside, the report says.
The officer observed redness, a scratch and a bruise on the child’s left cheek, the report says, as well as scratches that appeared to be from a fingernail on the back of her neck.
Alrayhawee told police she and her husband were arguing and fighting but denied touching the child and said the marks were self-inflicted, the report says.
Alrayhawee, 16947 Hamilton Ave., was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison on a felony count of cruelty to juveniles and a misdemeanor count of battery/domestic abuse/child endangerment.
