BELLMEAD, TX (KXXV) -

Bellmead police said a 19-year-old woman was arrested after she left her 2-week-old infant in her car and broke into her child's father's home on Sunday night. 

Police said that the woman, Samantha Vergara, had been spending time with the 32-year-old victim, but they had an argument earlier in the day. The victim decided to have a family member pick him up to end the altercation. 

Vergara drove to the victim's home at the 800 block of Glenwood, where she had previously received a criminal trespass warning.

She parked the car and began to scale the fence of the home - leaving her 2-week-old baby in the car. 

Vergara then knocked on the door, and when the victim would not open the door, she kicked the door in. Police said that once she was inside the home, she went after the victim. The victim's mother attempted to step between her son and Vergara, but Vergara grabbed the victim's mother around the neck. 

Police said no one was injured during the physical altercation.

Vergara was transported to the McLennan County Jail and charged with Burglary of a Habitation, Abandon or Endangering a Child and Criminal Trespass.
