A report of a burned child ultimately led police to arrest the 32-year-old mother after police discovered that in a domestic dispute she threw her 6-month-old in a car seat at the child's father.
Keansburg PD officers were dispatched to a Briarwood Avenue residence today sometime around 12:10 p.m., for a report of a 5-year-old female that had sustained a hot water burn to her face.
Upon arrival, officers learned that the victim had sustained the burn after bumping into a stove, causing hot water on top of the stove to splash onto the victim's face.
The victim was treated at the scene and was subsequently transported to Bayshore Hospital for further treatment.
While at the scene, officers learned of an unrelated argument between the victim's parents that had occurred at the residence. As a result of an on-scene investigation, it was discovered that Nicole Robbolino, 32, threw a child safety seat - containing her six-month-old son - at her boyfriend/father of the child.
As a result of being thrown, the six-month-old sustained a minor head injury that was evaluated by Keansburg EMS.
Robbolino was subsequently arrested and transported to the Keansburg Police Department.
She was charged with one count of assault and one count of endangering the welfare of a child.
Following her processing, she was lodged in Monmouth County Jail without bail.
