EUGENE, Ore. (AP) - A Eugene woman has been arrested on child abuse charges related to an incident in which she’s accused of severely injuring a child.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/2aF4pmd ) the 31-year-old woman is charged with assault, criminal mistreatment and coercion.

An indictment filed Tuesday in Lane County Circuit Court says she abused a boy younger than 6 on at least four occasions between September and November last year. The document says the boy suffered serious injury to parts of his lower body.

Court records say the alleged victim is not the woman’s biological child.

Records also show the woman’s ex-husband filed for immediate temporary custody of their two children, saying they were in danger of potential abuse.

The woman filed a petition against the claim, saying she has never hurt her children.
