GLOVERSVILLE — A woman is facing charges that accuse her of intentionally starving her baby, requiring emergency intervention, police said.
The infant was treated for malnutrition and dehydration and was placed in foster care, police said.
Crystyl J. Mohrlock-Young, the child's mother, faces one count of endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor. Police arrested her Monday.
The charge stemmed from an investigation by Fulton County Child Protective Services and the Gloversville Police Department, police said.
The investigation and emergency visit apparently happened in September, according to a police report.
"The condition of the child was determined to be so dire that it prompted the removal of the infant and emergency admission to the emergency room of Nathan Littauer Hospital," the report states.
Child Protective case workers allegedly discovered unopened cans of formula in the home, indicating Mohrlock-Young had the means to feed the baby, police said.
Mohrlock-Young, 29, of 18 Pearl St., Apt. 2, Gloversville, was held for arraignment. The results of her arraignment were not available Tuesday evening.
