Woman Attacks Baby in Stroller NR11344pv

Los Angeles:  Los Angeles County prosecutors have charged Natasha Hubbard, 36, with aggravated assault following Hubbard’s July 21 arrest for grabbing a 4-month-old baby from his stroller and slamming him into a metal pole.

Central Area Detectives are releasing Hubbard’s photograph in hopes that if there are other victims, they will come forward.  This happened in a shopping district within Skidrow, due to the fact that it is such a crowded area, Detectives feel that there could be other victims.

Around 1 PM, Adriana Miranda, 29, was pushing her infant son, Alexander, in a stroller on Boyd Street, near San Julian Street in the Toy District.  The baby was belted in his infant carrier, with Adriana’s sister walking nearby.  Without warning, Hubbard unbelted the child and grabbed him by the leg.   Witnesses described her as swinging the child over her head, and slamming him into a metal rail of a nearby truck.

“The mother and aunt fought off the woman and Mom grabbed the baby,” Lt. Vernon, commanding officer of the Central Detective Division, explained.  “Hubbard attacked Adriana, scratching and clawing her as she clutched Alexander in her arms.”

Mother and aunt ran into an adjoining store for protection, as their assailant ran away.   However, the owner of the store pushed the victims back out onto the street.  Arriving officers were able to locate Hubbard with the help of witnesses who pointed her out.  She was booked for Aggravated Assault and her bail was set at $30,000.

Hubbard told detectives at the police station that she tried to break off the baby’s arm so she could eat it.
The victim received bruises and scratches as a result of the attack.   The infant’s mother, Adriana  also sustained minor injuries.  

Anyone with information on this crime is urged to call Det. Erika Moya at 213-972-1234.  Anonymous tips can be called into Crime Stoppers at 800-222-TIPS (8477), or by texting 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Online tips may be placed at www.LAPDOnline.org, click on “webtips” and follow the prompts.
