LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police arrested a woman authorities say abused her 1-year-old child.

Tiffany Cecil, 21, was arrested Monday morning at the Red Roof Inn, located near Bishop Lane and Newburg Road, according to a police warrant.

Police say Cecil struck the child in the face on Oct. 24 and 25, 2015 causing "severe bruising to forehead, face and eye." Authorities say Cecil claimed the child was injured by falling from a bed. Police also say Cecil did not seek medical attention for the child.

Police records state that family members noticed the child's injuries and took the victim to Kosair Children's Hospital.

The child was examined and it was determined that the child was not hurt by falling from a bed.

Cecil is charged with criminal abuse and is being held at Metro Corrections on a $10,000 cash bond. She is scheduled to appear in court on March 1.
