WARREN COUNTY, Ohio (FOX19) - A Lebanon babysitter has been indicted on child endangerment charges after three kids in her care were hurt.

Heather Reed, 32, was babysitting an 18-month-old on Nov. 4, 2020, and caused physical harm to the child, according to court documents from the Warren County Prosecutor’s Office.

The 18-month-old suffered front scalp abrasion, subdural hemorrhage, parenchymal contusion, and retinal hemorrhages, Prosecutor David Fornshell said, citing medical personal.

More than a month earlier, on Sept. 28, 2020, Reed was watching two other kids when they were injured.

According to the document, “[Reed] failed to provide a duty of care resulting in physical harm” of the two children.

All the injuries are unexplained, at this point, prosecutors tell FOX19 NOW.

Reed was indicted for endangering children and felonious assault, according to the court documents.

She was released on a $50,000 bond and electronic home monitoring.
