A Shippensburg mother is in Cumberland County Prison on $50,000 cash bail after an investigation into the injuries of her 5-week-old son.

Shawnee Rebecca Strawser, 20, was charged with aggravated assault of a victim younger than 13, endangering the welfare of children, simple assault and recklessly endangering another person, in relation to an incident in June.

Shippensburg Borough Police said the child was admitted to the hospital and was found to have fractures to his legs and bleeding on the brain. The child has since been discharged from the hospital.

Strawser told police that she injured the child out of frustration because he was crying.

She was arraigned on Thursday, and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 12.
