MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - Police arrested a southern Oregon woman accused of injuring an 8-month-old girl she was babysitting.

Medford police Lt. Justin Ivens tells the Mail Tribune (https://is.gd/GSFkkK ) that 25-year-old Alicia Gunn is a friend of the child’s mother. He says Gunn went to neighbors for help after realizing the girl was hurt, and the neighbors called for help.

The girl suffered a brain injury and was transferred to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland.

Gunn was charged with first-degree assault. A judge set bail at $250,000 and scheduled a preliminary hearing for Monday.

Court records show Gunn has been arrested at least 15 times, often for drugs but also for burglary, theft, harassment and assault.
