BALTIMORE (AP) -- A mother managed to slip a long kitchen knife past security at a Baltimore social services building and used it to stab her infant daughter in the face and neck Tuesday, police said.
The 8-month-old baby was stabbed several times, but was listed in good condition at Johns Hopkins Children's Center and was expected to survive, Police Det. Donny Moses said.
"The baby should be OK," Moses said.
The mother was admitted to an area hospital for a mental health evaluation, police said.

What can I tell you? It happened in Baltimordor.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
This article is insane. I’m guessing that the mom was having supervised visitation with her infant daughter because SHE was insane and had abused the child in the past. Given the age of the daughter, it must have been recently. Two problems with the system - one - they take kids from parents when they should not but when once in a while they do the right thing and do take the kid away, they start this stupid “we have to re-establish the relationship” cr_p and put the kid at risk. Sorry about the rant but I’ve been a custody lawyer for three decades and have seen it all.
My goodness, thinking BALTIMORE has problems with sane people.
Yep, Maryland is a freak state — and you can attribute 90% of its problems to Baltimore City and Prince Georges County. And I say this as someone who grew up in and once loved Baltimore City.
Killer moms get mental evaluations, killer dads get jail. Like women just can’t be evil bastards.
There is no longer the sanctity of "Life"...especially with the parents of children today who have grown up knowing we legalized killing the unborn. Therefore the life of children in general was devalued greatly, not just the unborn.
BTW Thank you for trying to work in a system which is just as faulty as all other governance. I'm sure you have some favorable stories as well.
I think anyone who works with the general public for decades can say they've seen it all. The difference I see is there is no shame and that which would have once been rejected behavior by society is now gone past tolerance.
No... she killed another human being....I believe in capital punishment...and that would be fine for me with this woman. I would not call her a mother. Perhaps an incubator at best.
Imagine all the kids who would live if we had capital punishment for parents who take the life of their children.
A short rope and a tall tree will serve that purpose nicely.
works for me
Did the baby die after all?
Sorry to hear that if the poor little one did.
I’m all for Capital Punishment. I’ll even provide the bullet, rope, burning building...whatever will work.
They didn’t say WHERE in Baltimore this happened. But I can make an educated guess. East of Greenmount, perhaps. Or about 90% of the rest of that gorgeous city.
The baby is actually doing OK, in spite of her demented mother’s actions.
