A mother, who police say was drunk and wielding a knife around her two young children, was arrested and has been charged.
Diana Perez was charged with one count of injury to a child and two counts of child endangerment. Police report that a neighbor saw the mother acting erratic on the apartment's balcony and attempted to remove the two children, ages 3 years-old and a 5 month-old from the balcony. The oldest child was removed by the neighbor and police were able to retrieve the younger child from Perez. Both children were taken to the hospital for observation and then released over to their grandparents as CPS investigates the incident.
