FAIRVIEW HEIGHTS, Ill. -- A Swansea woman is accused of tossing her infant through a car window while trying to flee after authorities say she shoplifted from a department store.

Mykayla M. Bator, 23, was charged Monday with felony counts of theft and drug possession, as well as misdemeanor child endangerment, according to the Belleville News Democrat. 

Fairview Heights police said Bator bolted to a waiting vehicle with her 1-year-old, tossing the child through an open window into the back seat after she was confronted as a suspected shoplifter outside a Kohl’s store.

Then she got in the passenger seat of the vehicle, which drove away.

Police say the child wasn’t injured.

Bator doesn’t have a listed telephone number. Online court records don’t show whether she has an attorney.
