Mount Prospect police arrested a Northbrook woman late Monday on charges stemming from the discovery of a battered infant in her care.

Police first learned of the infant's injuries on Sunday when the baby was brought into Advocate Lutheran General Hospital in Park Ridge with multiple head injuries. The subsequent investigation revealed Tamara L. Nelson, 19, of the 2300 block of White Oak Drive in Northbrook was responsible for the infant at the time the injuries occurred.


The mother of the infant, who is not Nelson, brought the child to the hospital after discovering the injuries. Police arrested Nelson and charged her with one count of aggravated battery to a child.

The infant was treated and released from the hospital.

Nelson will appear in court on Jan. 17. She received a $20,000 bond.
