Summit County Sheriff's Deputies have arrested a Coventry Township woman who allegedly abused her friend's baby while she was watching her. 

The incident occured back in May, when Audrey D. Hunt, 35, offered to watch her friend's 10-month-old child on May 2nd. The mother agreed, willfully allowing Hunt to take the baby to her Coventry Township home. Hours later, the mother called Hunt so that she could have her baby brought back home. Hunt refused, saying she would bring the baby back the next day. 

On May 3rd, the mother got a ride to Hunt's home. That's when she noticed injuries to the baby's face and arms. She took the baby to Akron Children's Hospital, where hospital staff determined that the baby's injuries were consistant with abuse. The Summit County Sheriff's Department Detectives began their investigation. 

On Tuesday, June 20, Hunt was arrested and charged with Felony Interference with Custody, Misdemeanor Child Endangering, and Misdemeanor Assault. She's currently being held in Summit County Jail.
