Noorvik woman arrested for assaulting child
The Alaska State Troopers report that they arrested Rose Newlin, 27, of Noorvik, on Sunday. Newlin was remanded to the Kotzebue Regional Jail and held without bail on two counts of third-degree domestic violence assault and one count of fourth-degree assault.
Members from the Office of Children's Services removed a four-year-old child from Newlin's home last Thursday. They reported that he had severe bruising on his forehead, face, arms, back, legs and torso.
According to the trooper investigation, Newlin allegedly injured the boy by striking his head against the floor and hitting his body. She also failed to seek medical attention for the young child's injuries.
