Woman charged with assaulting 7-week-old
A local woman has been charged with aggravated assault involving an infant that had been left in her care by a family member.
Wei Wang, born in 1984, was scheduled to appear in Richmond provincial court on Thursday morning.
Richmond RCMP Sgt. Cam Kowalski said the four-month old case was sensitive in nature and that’s why Mounties didn’t release information about the incident after it occurred on Feb. 4, 2013.
There were no fears that other children had been assaulted, he added.
According to CBC News, the infant was just seven weeks old when he was allegedly assaulted, and Wang is charged with allegedly putting glue in the young boy’s ears.
CBC News reported Thursday that a search warrant indicates the baby was brought to a local hospital, crying and upset about glue found in and around his ears.
“The baby lives in a home with his parents and their extended family. Several family members claimed the sister-in-law Wei Wang was jealous of Baby Y because she had two daughters,” the CBC story said. “The victim’s father also claimed he’d found a needle stuck in his son’s car seat a few weeks earlier.”
