The centre is a specialized and integrated unit that combines police investigators, child protection workers, child abuse physicians and prosecutors for investigations of physical and sexual abuse of children.
On May 11 around 7:40 p.m. Regina police officers responded to a call to help EMS with a toddler who wasn’t breathing.
Police arrived at the scene on the 100 block of Broad Street shortly before EMS. Officers administered emergency medical care to the young girl until EMS took over.
Police took statements from two adults who were at the house during the incident as well as the child’s parents, who arrived after EMS and police.
Investigators learned at the hospital that the young girl had acute ethanol poisoning.
After further investigation, Jessica Rae Fehr, 29, was arrested on June 9. Fehr is not the mother of the young girl.
In addition to an aggravated assault charge, Fehr is charged with administering a noxious thing (alcohol and Benadryl).
Fehr made her first court appearance on Wednesday.
