HOUSTON, Texas (KPRC) -- A Texas Child Protective Services case worker remains hospitalized after she was attacked Tuesday while investigating a report of an abused baby.
According to Houston police, the baby's parents and a friend beat and choked the 23 year old woman until she lost consciousness.
Case worker Stephanie Zera went to the Somerset Apartments around 5 p.m. Tuesday to check on the well being of a one year old infant.
"We were investigating allegations of medical neglect, neglect of supervision and and physical abuse. The reason the visit at the home was to conduct that investigation," said CPS supervisor Estella Olguin.
Olguin says Zera was trying to arrange to have a relative take custody of the baby while the parents were being evaluated.
During that discussion, the baby's father, identified as Troy Davis, 21, became angry, grabbed Zera and locked the apartment's front door.
Police say Davis punched Zera in the head, then grabbed her by the throat, and slammed her against a wall.
