A 21-year-old Columbus mother told authorities that her boyfriend's sister bumped an occupied stroller with a vehicle Tuesday at the intersection of Oates Avenue and 43rd Street, according to a police report.
The mother's 2-year-old son was in the stroller, but he did haven't any marks or bruises following the reported incident, police said. Medics transported the child to the Midtown Medical Center for an evaluation.
Columbus Police were called to a residence in the 4200 block of Oates Avenue around 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in reference to a domestic dispute.
The mother told responding officers that she and her boyfriend had just left his house on 43rd Street, because his sister was "being argumentative." She said she also didn't want her boyfriend talking to his sister, because his sister was "trying to cause problems."
The woman reported that she and her boyfriend were walking south on Oates Avenue when his sister intentionally tried to hit her with a vehicle. The woman was able to dodge the vehicle, but it bumped the stroller, the report states.
She told authorities that the vehicle was traveling very slowly, but it made contact with her son. The incident allegedly happened between 9 and 9:35 a.m.
The sister is not listed as a suspect and no one has been arrested in the case. Columbus Police said they will continue to investigate the case.
