Baby possibly overdosed

WARREN — Police are investigating how a 9-month-old overdosed some time after 8:30 p.m. Thursday at a home in the 2300 block of Stephens Avenue NW.

Detective Nick Carney responded to the main Akron Children’s Hospital about 10:30 a.m. Saturday to interview the boy’s family.

The child was unresponsive and later taken by air to the hospital. A police report states the baby was treated for a possible overdose, but no updated condition was given, nor were details on what kind of drug the toddler had taken.

No charges have been filed as of Tuesday morning.

Warren police Capt. Jeff Cole said he doesn’t have any more details on the case or the condition of the child. Attempts to contact Carney were unsuccessful Tuesday.
