(KMOV) – A 22-year-old woman faces charges after she allegedly broke her 11-week-old son’s arm at their Florissant home on June 18.
Alison Honkomp was charged Monday with second-degree assault.
According to court documents, Honkomp was alone with her infant son at their home in the 220 block of Saint Daniel when she twisted his arm so hard it broke.
Police said doctors at Children’s Hospital determined the baby’s arm had a spiral break, consistent with child abuse, when she brought her son in to be checked out.
Doctors then notified the Missouri Department of Family Services and police.
Honkomp remains in custody on a $10,000 bond.
