A 46-year-old San Angelo woman is facing two counts of injury to a child after an incident at the Cross Keys Apartment Complex in the 12 hundred block of S. Abe last Thursday.
Police were dispatched to the complex just after 5:30 p.m. October 13, 2016 for the report of an unknown problem. When they arrived, they located two girls, ages 4 and 7, who had visible injuries to their heads. Both victims required medical attention for non-life threatening injuries.
Officers spoke with several subjects who said the girls were playing in the apartment courtyard when a woman came out of her apartment and assaulted the two children with a metal object.
The suspect, later identified as Ammity Mae Lancaster, was not located at the time of the incident.
Subsequent to the ongoing investigation, Detective Jason Chegwidden obtained an arrest warrant for Lancaster from Justice of the Peace, Judge Eddie Howard.
Lancaster was located and arrested at the complex yesterday afternoon and transported to the Tom Green County Jail without incident.
