Garden City police disarm and arrest a woman they say was holding a knife to a nine-month-old's throat.

Around 3:20 Monday morning officers responded to a home in the 400 block of Davis St. in Garden City for the report of an aggravated assault. When officers arrived they found a woman in the driveway, holding a baby in her arms.

Police say the woman was holding the blade of a pocket knife near the throat of the baby, identified as her nine-month-old son. Investigators say the woman yelled at officers and refused to put down the baby or the knife.

While officers talked to the woman, investigators say they were able to get the knife and baby away from the woman. No one was hurt. The woman was arrested on charges of kidnapping, aggravated assault and endangering a child.
