A 17-year-old boy was arrested Wednesday night after a domestic dispute in Pittsburgh’s Sheraden neighborhood.
According to police, the boy got into a fight with the 24-year-old mother of his 1-year-old son inside their Sacramento Avenue home. Police said the woman is pregnant.
The boy is accused of biting her on the shoulder and throwing a lamp at her, authorities said. The man also threw a TV down the stairs and broke a glass table, officials said.
Investigators said the fight continued when the woman tried to call 911 on her cellphone. According to police, the boy then punched her in the face, took her cellphone and left the house.
Neighbors told Channel 11’s Jodine Costanzo that he often hears fighting coming from the house.
“You have to feel sad. I have kids and I know what feeling it would be like if something like that happened to my kids,” neighbor Lee McDonald said.
Detectives said the baby was hit on the head with the lamp during the dispute.
Officials said the baby and woman were both taken to UPMC Mercy Hospital. They are both expected to be OK.
“This makes me mad. Why should a child be involved in a family dispute like this?” neighbor Lonnie Whitt said
The boy was taken to the Shuman Juvenile Detention Center and was charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and robbery.
