CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - A West End woman is behind bars after police say she failed to seek medical attention when her toddler son suffered severe burns.

Sharon Jackson, 40, is charged with child endangering and obstructing official business.

Police say Jackson's 2-year-old son suffered second-degree burns to his genitals, buttocks and legs. Police did not say if Jackson caused the burns.

When police arrived to arrest Jackson on Tuesday, she fled into her residence and refused to open the door.

Jackson was taken to the Hamilton County Justice Center.
