An Oklahoma City woman was arrested on a child abuse complaint after her daughter suffered a broken jaw and several bruises on her face and arms.
Police responded Thursday to a report of an abused child at OU Medical Center. Amber Herzberg, 25, had brought her 3-year-old daughter to the hospital for treatment for a broken jaw. The girl also had bruises on her arms and face, officers said.
Herzberg told police the girl had suffered the injuries when she fell out of bed. A doctor who examined the girl told police he didn’t think the injuries could have come from a fall out of bed. The doctor said he had only seen a jaw fracture of that kind after a physical fight between two adults.
Herzberg was arrested and booked at the Oklahoma County jail, where she was being held Friday on $10,000 bail.
