Toddler Hospitalized, Woman Charged with Assault

A 19-month-old baby is hospitalized in critical condition and a woman is in jail on assault charges.

Cattaraugus County Sheriff’s say they were contacted by staff at Bradford Regional Medical Center after Limestone Ambulance brought the child in with “a very serious unexplained head trauma.” The child was transferred to Women and Children’s Hospital in Buffalo, where the medical staff determined the trauma was “most likely caused by recklessly shaking the child.”

22-year-old Jessica Courteau of Bradford was charged with assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child and was sent to jail in lieu of $100,000 bail.

The baby is Corteau's boyfriend's child.
