Suffield Woman Dropped Baby to Attack Boyfriend: Police

A Suffield woman is accused of dropping her baby on the hood of a police cruiser in order to hit her boyfriend while he was speaking to officers who were responding to a 911 hang-up call Monday evening.

The suspect, identified as Jesaida Rodriguez, 33, faces risk of injury and disorderly conduct charges.

Suffield police said that they responded to a home on North Grand Street when dispatch received a hang-up 911 call around 6:22 p.m. When officers arrived they began talking to a male who was standing in the driveway. At that point, Rodriguez walked toward the officers, dropped her 1-and-a-half-year-old daughter on the hood of a police car and tried to hit the male in front of police.

The victim was identified as Rodriguez's boyfriend.

Rodriguez was also wanted on an arrest warrant for failure to appear charges. She was issued a combined $8,000 bond and is scheduled to appear in court Tuesday.

The Department of Children and Families has been called in to conduct their own investigation.
