Nebraska Woman Arrested For Holding Knife To Baby’s Neck

A 3-week-old baby is in protective custody after her mother threatened the girl's life by holding a knife to her throat in Omaha. Police say witnesses told them Monday night that the 23-year-old woman had been drinking and may have used drugs.

She reportedly assaulted several people in an area of northeast Omaha, then left while holding the knife at her baby's throat. The people refused treatment. Omaha Police Sgt. Tim Woolman says several officers were organized for a search. The woman was found in about 90 minutes. Woolman says the baby was unhurt. Her mother was taken into custody.
