A mother was arrested Thursday after her baby daughter was found covered in urine and feces in a cockroach-infested apartment in Brooklyn, police said.
Officers were called to Yasheameia Hamilton’s apartment on Batchelder Street in Sheepshead Bay’s Nostrand Houses after a call about a child possibly left alone, police said.
When they arrived, Hamilton, 35, was there, but her daughter, less than a year old, was found with a dirty diaper and covered in urine and feces. She also appeared malnourished and had not been washed for a while, police said.
Hamilton was charged with acting in a manner injurious to a child, according to police. She was previously arrested in 2016 after she stepped on a child’s back, an NYPD spokeswoman said.
