MIDLAND - A Midland mother was arrested on charges of injury to a child.

Police were called out to Midland Memorial Hospital in reference to an injured child.

When officers arrived, they found a 12 month old girl with multiple bruises on her body.

The report says the right side of her face was so swollen that her eye was shut.

The mother, Dominic Servantes, told police she left the infant sitting on the kitchen counter while she tended to her two other children.

When she came back, she said the baby was on the floor.

When asked about the other bruises, Servantes said her other two children were rough with the baby.

However, police say her statements were inconsistent and she was arrested for injury to a child.
