A 40-year-old Gladesboro woman has been charged with felony child endangerment after an investigation by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office.

On Jan. 2, deputies responded to a home on Crooked Oak Road after receiving a call that a child may have been assaulted, Sheriff J.B. Gardner said.

Corporal Barry Lineberry and Investigator Brandon Edwards responded with rescue units to the home and found a 4-year old child complaining of pain and bruising to her face, around her eyes. The child was transported to Twin County Regional Hospital and then transferred to Brenner Children’s Hospital in Winston-Salem, N.C. where she was listed in stable condition.

As a result of the investigation, Amy Dutkiewicz Cooper was charged and arrested for Felony Child Endangerment, Gardner said. Cooper was being held in the New River Valley Jail under no bond.
