Tarpon Springs, Florida (AFP) A local Florida native has been charged with some of his two friends’ children, and their mother has been charged with negligence.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says Rashon Davis was arrested Thursday. He was charged with two counts of aggravated child abuse, and was held on $50,000 bail on Friday.
Court records indicate that there is no attorney named after the plaintiff.
Police say the two-year-old showed eight bite marks on his buttocks, back and face, as well as 35 cuts to his back. A three-year-old boy had a bite mark on his buttock.
Investigators said Davis confessed to some of the boys to vent his anger.
In August last year, the boys were evicted from the home where Davis resided alongside partner Andrea Fulton after a family dispute.
Fulton faces charges of negligence. Her lawyer did not give her name.
