A Fort Pierce, Florida teen was arrested and charged after leaving bite marks on the neck of a nine-year-old boy. 18-year-old Tawny Hickman had allegedly been babysitting the youngster who had slept over at her house, according to WPBF.com. When the boy returned home, his mother noted “hickey-type marks” on his neck, prompting her to call 911.
The boy’s mother claimed that Hickman had been babysitting the boy, and that she’d ignored neighbourhood rumours about “stuff going on” between the pair. The boy had allegedly joined his babysitter in her bedroom where they’d bitten each other- she reportedly had bite marks on her abdomen. She has been charged with child abuse and battery.
