Two children were hurt, one critically, and police have arrested a woman after a neighbor called 911 to report one of the kids was being chased by a parent in Woodbury early Wednesday.
In a news release, the Woodbury Police Department says officers responded to the 400 block of Lake View Alcove at 12:46 a.m. Wednesday after a 911 caller reported a neighbor's child was being chased by a parent. In other 911 calls related to the incident, screaming could be heard in the background.
When police arrived at the scene, the child, believed to be 6, was with the 911 caller. Another child, believed to be between 4 and 6 years old, was lying in the street, unresponsive.
