A Maytown woman was charged with injuring her 2-year-old stepson, after police found bruises and scrapes all over his body.
Susquehanna Regional Police charged Kiann L. Fulton, 23, of Endslow Road, with aggravated assault, simple assault, reckless endangerment and endangering the welfare of a child.
Also, the child and three other children were taken from Fulton's home into protective custody and remain under the care of the county Children and Youth Agency, police said.
The arrest happened after police checked on the welfare of the child April 17. They found multiple "bruises and abrasions" on his face, hands, back, legs and buttocks, police said.
The parents were not home and the child was being watched by his grandparents. At that time, police took the 2-year-old as well as the three other children into protective custody.
Police then investigated the child's injuries and filed the charges.
Fulton was committed to Lancaster County Prison, after being unable to post $100,000 bail.
