Woman charged after allegedly striking baby in the street

Posted: Updated:


The investigation continues, into a disturbing story out of Egg Harbor Township, where a woman was seen allegedly striking her newborn baby. Those in the neighborhood say they have never seen anything like it.

"I'm like seriously disturbed." And Katie Boyle isn't the only one.

The events that unfolded out front of an Egg Harbor Township home on Tuesday is all anyone who saw it, seems to be talking about.

"She was naked, completely naked. Kind of grappling with another lady," said neighbor, David O'Donnell.

The naked woman, police say, is 29-year-old Tatiana Vorobev.

Just after 2:00 P.M. police received reports that a woman was assaulting a child, a 17 day old girl, outside of a home on the 5000 block of Ridge avenue.

"The baby was 17 days old, and she took the baby into the middle of the street and was beating the baby," said Boyle.

Before police were on scene, they say that a motorist, who was driving by, was able to pull over and intervene. They say they then forced the baby away from Vorobev, and kept her safe until police arrived.

According to neighbors, Vorobev moved into the home two weeks ago, but that didn't keep them from trying to figure out, why Vorobev would allegedly assault her own child.

"I think maybe postpartum? The stress of having a new baby," said Boyle. "I know it's stressful, but that's inexcusable."

Vorobev was taken to the hospital following the altercation for a psychiatric evaluation. The child was taken to DuPont Children's Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Vorobev will be taken to the Atlantic County Justice Facility once released from the hospital. She is charged with endangering the welfare of a child, aggravated assault of an infant, child abuse, and aggravated assault of a police officer.
