Cops: Pregnant women arrested after hospital fight

This gem comes to you from our awesome night-side reporter, Phillip Lucas:

Two pregnant women were arrested after a fight inside a hospital room that left a woman and a teenage girl briefly hospitalized Tuesday afternoon, police said.

At 11:47 a.m., Upland police were dispatched to Crozer-Chester Medical Center on a call about a scuffle involving a weapon in one of the hospital rooms.

When police arrived, they found two pregnant women, ages 21 and 22, fighting with a 36-year–old woman and a 15-year-old girl.

Upland Police Investigator Steve Jackson said the victims had “wounds consistent with an edge weapon,” but could not elaborate on what type of weapon was used. 

The victims were treated for minor injuries at the hospital and were released about an hour later, said Kathy Scullin, vice president of marketing at Crozer-Chester. 

The pregnant suspects were waiting to be discharged from the hospital Tuesday evening.   

“Once they’re cleared medically from Crozer they’ll be brought to Chester City headquarters to be processed,” Jackson said. 

Police were unsure of what led to the altercation, but said the women were visiting the same patient.
