JUNCTION CITY, Ore. -- A woman has been charged in connection to a child abuse case Thursday.

Mckenzie Jean Baumgardner, 22, was charged with criminal mistreatment and third-degree assault.

According to the charging affidavit provided to KEZI by the Junction City Police Department, Baumgardner hit her 3-year-old son in the face and busted his nose, causing him to bleed.

The affidavit also details witness statements that say she once threw her son against a wall.

She was arraigned Thursday afternoon and will appear before a judge again on Jan. 16.

Baumgardner's boyfriend, Brian Domin, was issued citations to appear in court on five misdemeanor counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.

The Oregon Department of Human Services reports that in 2018, there were 16,304 incidents of child abuse in the state. Nearly 40% of those cases identified the mother of the child as being the person responsible for the abuse.
