A woman out for a walk with her baby and another child in Utica, N.Y., was packing more than diapers in her stroller, police say.

Stephanie Wilson pulled a knife and a sawed-off shotgun out of the stroller to threaten another woman in an ongoing argument over money, according to police.

Wilson was charged with endangering the welfare of a child and criminal possession of a weapon.

The 29-year-old Wilson was being held in jail without bail pending a court appearance. Her baby was turned over to social workers, while the older child was taken by a relative.

Utica Public Safety Commissioner Dan LaBella says he has never seen anything like it in his 20-year law enforcement career.
