Social media video results in arrest

A social media video resulted in an arrest by Peru Police involving a battery on a child.


On Friday evening, Peru Police were dispatched to conduct a welfare check on a small child.  Officers received information of the existence of a video of an adult female that battered a child.


Police and the Indiana Department of Child Services determined the child was not injured and the child was placed with family members as an investigation was initiated.


The Peru Police say the video was released via social media and numerous reports came into the department.  Following the investigation, Hanna Winch, 21, was taken to the Miami County Jail on charges of domestic battery and intimidation.


The investigation is ongoing.  Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Tyler Shoffner at (765) 473-2150, extension 504.
