The complaint states that police were called to the scene at 12:45 a.m. May 26 after multiple 911 calls reported that a woman was chasing a child through the neighborhood. When officers arrived at Lake View Alcove, they found a boy running away from Mohamed.
Mohamed was taken into custody shortly after.
Officers then heard several people yelling that there was a dead child in the street. They found a 5-year-old girl lying surrounded by a puddle of blood. She had shallow breathing and was unresponsive so was taken to Regions Hospital with her brother, who had a possible broken arm.READ MORE: Minnesota Olympians Help Boost Interest In Their Sports At Home
Inside of the house, officers found a 3-year-old child, who was unharmed.
Out on the sidewalk in front of the house, officers found a pool of blood and a long, skinny object. The boy said in an interview that his mother had kicked him out of the house and had hit his sister multiple times with what he described as a gray cylindrical object about 12 inches long.
In a Miranda interview, Mohamed said she had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and had been off her medications for a couple of months. She said she suffered hallucinations and according to the complaint, said she “wasn’t sure if her kids were the devil or a demon which made her question if she should hurt them or not.”
At the end of the interview, she said she was sick, confused, and could not take care of her kids or herself.MORE NEWS: Woman Injured In Shooting In Brooklyn Park Basement
