WOONSOCKET – A 10-month-old girl with signs of physical abuse was found alone in a battered women’s safe house Sunday after police detained the mother on Hamlet Avenue wearing nothing on top but a bra.
Police said Ebony Evans, 33, was arrested on charges of child neglect and second-degree child abuse.
She was so intoxicated when police picked her up in front of Consumer’s Oil about 1 a.m. that she didn’t know where she was or the day of the week, according to a police report. Officer Michael S. Martinsen said witnesses had seen Evans wandering across travel lanes and attempting to flag down motorists.
When she was taken to Landmark Medical Center for an evaluation, a glass crack pipe fell out of her bra and smashed on the floor of a treatment area, he said.
