Woman wakes to find stranger giving her child bath

An Ohio mother had quite the surprise when she woke up last week -- a complete stranger was in her house getting ready to give a bath to her child.

Areica Hill told WCMH that the sound of a dog barking in her home woke her up. She looked down the hall and saw a woman preparing to give her 2-year-old son a bath.

Hill said she fought the woman to get away from her son. Hill's boyfriend held the woman until police arrived, police said.

Elizabeth Hixon was arrested and faces burglary charges, WCMH reported.

Police said Hixon entered the home through an unlocked door, and she told them she found the boy outside the home and was caring for him, WCMH reported.

Hixon is free on bond, and the Franklin County Prosecutor's office is reviewing the case, according to WCMH.
