According to the report, 25-year-old Deneisha Dickson was at a home on the 2700 block of Hammaker Street, where she got into an argument with her child's father, who left the house before the incident.
Police say three separate witnesses at the home told officers that Dickson picked up the car seat with her 9-month-old daughter inside and threw it approximately 10 feet.
