A Calgary mother has been charged with one count of aggravated assault in relation to an infant’s injuries from nearly two years ago.

The woman, whose name was not shared as she has the same last name as the victim, was charged on Thursday, February 20 following a 23-month long investigation that was launched on Tuesday, March 13, 2018 when an 11-month-old girl was brought to the Alberta Children’s Hospital with a broken arm, according to a CPS release.

The injury wasn’t consistent with what the mother had told doctors, the release states, and an investigation also discovered that the injured girl’s twin brother lived at the same home.

Police discovered that the boy had been suffering from a fractured right ankle and multiple skull fractures, though no charges have yet been laid in relation to the boy’s injuries.

The investigation continues, and anyone who knows this family and may have information about either of the children’s injuries is asked to contact the Calgary Police Service at 403-266-1234.

Tips can be left anonymously through Crime Stoppers by calling 1-800-222-8477 or through their website.

It is also noted in the release that any parents who are struggling to care for their children can access a number of resources by calling 211 or Health Link at 811.
