BEMUS POINT – A Bemus Point woman is in county lockup after allegedly striking and dragging a child up a stairwell over the weekend.

New York State Police allege Taija Pettit, 30, struck the minor victim approximately four times and then dragged her upstairs by her ear, all in the presence of a younger child.







Troopers say when a third party attempted to interfere and stop Pettit from abusing the child, she allegedly struck him.

When responding officers attempted to place Pettit into custody, they said she became disorderly and attempted to flee the scene but was placed under arrest after a brief struggle.







Pettit was taken to Chautauqua County Jail and charged with two counts of endangering the welfare of a child, two counts of second-degree harassment, second-degree obstruction of governmental administration and resisting arrest.

Troopers were assisted by Chautauqua County Sheriff Deputies at the scene.
