ILION, N.Y. (WKTV) - A response by police for a domestic dispute has led to child endangerment charges for an Ilion woman.

According to Ilion Police, Holly Marie Remis, 26, of Ilion, has been charged with endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say officers responded to Remis' Ilion residence around 12:20 p.m. on August 3 for a reported domestic dispute. During the investigation, police said it was discovered that reason the dispute began was because Remis placed her foot against the stomach of her five year old son, then intentionally and forcible shoved the child backwards and away from her, while using profanity towards the child.

Due to the strength of forced Remis used, police said the child was physically thrown back roughly six feet backwards, falling onto the floor on his buttocks. Police said the child did not sustain any injuries.

A Child Abuse Hotline report was placed to the New York State Child Abuse Registry and notification was subsequently made to the Herkimer County Child Protective Services. The child, along with a sibling, were temporarily placed in the custody of other family members, police said.

Remis was issued an appearance ticket to appear in Village of Ilion Court on Tuesday, August 14 at 4 p.m.
