Salem City Police Chief John Pelura III’s message to Harris through the South Jersey Times is “Turn yourself in. You’ve been charged and you are going to have to face the consequences.”  Police have received a few tips as to where Harris may be and her family is also urging the 25-year-old to turn herself in.

Harris is considered a fugitive and she is part of the FBI’s National Crime Information Center database according to the newspaper. Philadelphia Police are also on alert for Harris’ possible return to her hometown. She faces charges of aggravated assault and two counts of terroristic threats. Bail is set at $350,000. The Times reports a bail bondsman had been in touch with Salem police on Thursday.

Police have been searching for Harris after the videotape surfaced of her allegedly pummeling Catherine Ferreira in the face and kicking her in the back along a trail Tuesday in Salem. She allegedly is also heard threatening to attack the toddler.

Police obtained the video before it was removed from Facebook.
