ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) -- A New Hampshire couple suspected of endangering the woman's 3-year-old son has been arrested at Universal Studios in Orland, Fla., after two weeks on the run.

Authorities arrested 23-year-old Jessica Linscott of Plaistow and her boyfriend, 27-year-old Roland Dow, on Wednesday around 6 p.m.

Rockingham County Attorney Jim Reams said tips helped to track down the couple.

Linscott is charged with multiple counts of child endangerment for failing to get medical attention for her son when he was suffering seizures from a head injury and for failure to protect him from harm.

Dow is charged with first- and second-degree assault.

The couple will be arraigned in Florida on Thursday on fugitive from justice charges.
