A woman has been charged with child endangerment after reportedly dangling her 4-month-old infant from a window, Harris County Constable Precinct 4 says.

The incident happened Friday at the Venti Apartment complex in the 14300 block of Ella Boulevard in north Harris County.

According to court records, police received multiple calls of a woman, identified as Gre’Ondria Whitfield, allegedly threatening to kill her child while holding them from an apartment window on the third floor.

Officials said witnesses at the scene reportedly pleaded with Whitfield and kicked in her door, causing her to point a gun at one of them.

When deputies arrived, they quickly got the infant to safety and detained Whitfield.

Whitfield is currently in custody and is charged with child endangerment and aggravated assault. Her bond was set at $40,000. Her next court date is scheduled for Tuesday.

Reporters spoke to a neighbor who said he witnessed a part of the ordeal. He asked Eyewitness News to conceal his identity as he recalls what happened after some neighbors tried to intervene.

“She came back out with a gun and the baby. And that’s when we all were like, ‘Oh, shoot, we gotta take care of our safety.’ We backed up a little bit, but we still had eyes on her, but we didn’t want to do too much to antagonize her more. She was so irrational, so we just waited for the cops,” he said.
