Cops: S.D. woman broke into home, attempted to breastfeed stranger's baby

BROOKINGS, S.D. - Police in Brookings have arrested and charged a woman for reportedly entering another woman's home and attempting to breast feed her child.

Brookings Police Lt. Derrick Powers says that a woman called 911 early Sunday morning to report that a woman she did not know had entered her home and tried to start breast feeding her 2-month-old child.

The child's mother was able to take the child back from the suspect, who remained in the home until police arrived to arrest her.

The 24-year-old suspect was arrested and charged with unlawful occupancy, which is a misdemeanor. She was taken to the Brookings County Detention Center. A message left at the Detention Center has not been returned.

Powers says alcohol was a factor in the incident.
