CLEVELAND - Cleveland Police arrested a woman they said placed her infant daughter in an oven, and then a trash can, Wednesday night.

Lalier M. Dillon, 22, of the 3000 block of W. 61st Street, was charged with domestic violence, escape, endangering children and resisting arrest after a witness said he saw her place the baby in the oven at her home at around 7:30 p.m.

The witness removed the one-year-old from the oven, which was not turned on, and placed the child on the floor of the kitchen. Then, the police report indicates, Dillion picked the baby up and placed her in the trash can.

At this point, the witness told police he took the baby to a neighbor's house and called police.

According to the report, the woman told witnesses she was "sick of her kids" and that she was going to duct tape them.

According to the report, the woman slipped out of one of her handcuffs after police placed her in the cruiser and, when an officer opened the door, she kicked him and tried to escape.
