After an 11-month-old child overdosed on Fentanyl in Fall River, Massachusetts, police said, two people have been arrested and are facing charges in the case.

Warrants were issued charging Lynne Servant, 35, and Kevin Baker, 39, with permit injury to a child, police said Tuesday.

The charge comes after an 11-month-old child overdosed on the powerful opiate drug fentanyl, according to police. The child was in stable condition Tuesday.

Police didn't say what relationship the child had to Servant or Baker or how they believe the child was exposed to the drug.

Police had been seeking the whereabouts of Servant and Baker but announced Wednesday both had been arrested earlier in the day without incident.

"The investigation is still ongoing and the Fall River Police will not be commenting on the case," police said in a statement.
