Child allegedly kept around needles


Police say a Punxsutawney couple kept a child in a filthy apartment.

Kylie Swatsworth, 27, and Robert Blankenship, 33, each face a child endangerment charge.

The complaint says police found a razor, uncapped hypodermic needles and cut-up Xanax pills in the 200 block of West Mahoning St. on Sunday.

Police say CYS seized the child, who was asleep in the apartment at the time.

The suspects were both arrested on Monday with bail set at $30,000 for each of them, according to court records.
