By The Leader-Herald

GLOVERSVILLE –A city woman was charged after city police said she failed to feed an infant.

Crystyl J. Mohrlock-Young, 29, of 18 Pearl St. apartment 2 was charged with endangering the welfare of a child by city police on Monday.

Officers said Mohrlock-Young was charged following an investigation by Fulton County Child Protective Services and the city police.

Detectives allege that the investigation revealed that Mohrlock-Young intentionally failed to provide food to an infant child in her care, over the period of several months.

The condition of the child was determined to be so dire that it prompted the removal of the infant, and emergency admission to the Emergency Room of Nathan Littauer Hospital.

Child Protective Case Workers allegedly discovered unopened cans of formula in the residence, where the infant was removed from.

The infant was treated by doctors for malnutrition and dehydration whereupon the infant was placed in temporary foster care.

Mohrlock-Young was processed and held for arraignment in City Court.
