THOMASVILLE — Police are investigating the weekend death of an infant, along with a Sunday stabbing in which the victim required emergency surgery.

“There was no indication of foul play,” police Sgt. Melven Johnson said about the death of the six-week-old boy.

An aunt found the baby about 7 a.m. Sunday. Johnson declined to say where the child was found.

The unattended death occurred at a residence in the 200 block of Gribben Street.

Police are awaiting results of an autopsy that was to be performed Monday at the state crime lab in Moultrie.

In another case, a 36-year-old Thomasville woman remained in the Thomas County Jail Monday charged with aggravated battery. She is being held in lieu of a $15,100 bond.

Hazel Irene Robinson, 122 Canon St., is charged with cutting a co-worker at American Legion Post 519, 312 Hopkins St., about 12:45 a.m. Sunday.

Robinson surrendered at the Jail-Justice Center about two hours after the alleged cutting.

A disagreement between Robinson and the victim began in the parking lot after the American Legion closed, said Johnson, assistant commander of the Thomasville Police Department Criminal Investigations Division. Johnson did not know why the women were arguing.

The victim, 45, a Thomasville resident, was transported to Archbold Memorial Hospital and underwent emergency surgery for a wound to the upper chest. She also was cut on the hand, Johnson said.

The woman was in the Archbold intermediate care unit Monday, listed in fair condition.

“The weapon used in the assault has not been recovered,” the officer said.
