Youngstown woman charged in beating of 6-month-old; baby in serious condition

Staff report


A city woman is scheduled for court today for the reported beating of a 6-month-old baby.

Brenda Moore, 51 of Cohasset Drive, is in Mahoning County jail on charges of child endangering and felonious assault.

Moore was arrested Saturday at her home after police received reports that a baby girl was injured while staying in Moore’s care, according to a police report.

A family member noticed bruises and swelling on the girl’s face, chest and legs after picking her up from the Cohasset Drive home on Saturday, where she was under Moore’s care.

The baby was taken to Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron in serious condition. Doctors there said she has a skull fracture and bleeding in her brain.

Moore told police that the girl fell out of bed during her nap and landed on a Community Corrections Association monitor. A witness who arrived at the residence while police were present said Moore beat the child because she was crying, according to a police report.

A baby boy living with Moore was removed from the home.

Moore will appear in Youngstown Municipal Court on Monday.

Beating a baby is sure a good way to make it stop crying. Besides prison for life, this woman should be beaten just like the baby.

My prayer is for this baby right now. This woman will get whatever is coming to her..but this innocent baby is in need of prayer to get through her injuries. May God bless this child and heal this baby girl. Protect her and keep her from any more hurt, harm or danger. In Jesus' name.. Amen
