Ottawa woman accused of injuring child

Posted by wlpo on February 16, 2011

A birthday party is probably one of the last places you would expect a child to be abused.  But a woman in Ottawa is suspected of abusing a child younger than 13 while at a child’s birthday party earlier this month.

Heather Ferrario was picked up by police after the La Salle County States Attorney’s office issued a warrant for her arrest Tuesday.

Ferrario was charged with aggravated battery of a child following an investigation by the Ottawa Police and the Department of Children and Family Services.  Police say investigators have a photo of the child’s injured face.  The child is staying with a guardian.

Ferrario was taken to the county jail but was released after posting bond.
