Police: Child hurt by knife, mother detained by Dallas Police

DALLAS (AP) - A Dallas woman is in custody after police found her 1-year-old child injured by a knife.

Dallas police say the woman called police Monday morning. When police arrived, they found the child cut by a knife. Though the extent of the child's injuries isn't known, police tell WFAA-TV the girl has undergone surgery and is expected to recover.

The mother had not been charged Monday morning.

Police say they have responded to the woman's East Dallas home recently. Officers visited the home last week at the request of the woman's sister, but found the child not to be in apparent danger.

A state Child Protective Services spokesman says the agency is investigating and the child has not yet been taken into foster care.
