SPRINGDALE, OH (FOX19) -

A woman will face a judge on Tuesday after leading police on a chase with her child inside the van at the time of the incident. 

On May 11, police say Erica Barreiro-Rapp was at the Springdale Police Department to attend court when officers notified her that she was wanted in two other jurisdictions. 

Barreiro-Rapp allegedly told her attorney she was going to go get her phone from her van so that she could call someone to pick up her child. Officers followed her out to her van where she refused to get out of the vehicle, according to Springdale Police Department Lt. Rick Neumann.
She eventually took off and led officers on chase. 

Neumann said the chase was called off due to the risk of the child in the car. 

Officers caught Barreiro-Rapp on Monday when they were called to the Burlington Coat Factory on Colrain Ave. for reports of a theft in progress. Colerain officers identified the suspect as Barreiro-Rapp and she was taken into custody.

Barreiro-Rapp is facing child endangering, failure to comply and driving under suspension chargers stemming from the May 11 incident. She is also facing charges in Butler County and in Kentucky. 

Officials have not said if she will face charges stemming from incident at the Burlington Coat Factory.
