She was arrested for endangering the welfare of a child.

While police attempted to take Didomenico in custody, she allegedly  attempted to pull away from them.

She faces an additional resisting arrest charge.

Didomenico awaits arraignment in city jail.

  1. Hmm.She should have said she thought the child was with the other parent or that another child opened the door. Just like the incident on East 2nd St. About 2 weeks ago. Which no one missed the child with at least 2 hours passing. SMH.

  2. My question is..how does a 1 yr old open a door? He or she is very short, these incidents are happening way to often with parents not protecting themselves and their children. This 1 yr old, must be walking very unsteadily as well to be chasing a dog and only be 1. It costs less than a dollar to add a hook and eye gadget to a door. …very sad.
