The woman said her boyfriend assaulted her Saturday night at their Cleveland home because she refused to cook bacon, the report said. He then allegedly hit the child, causing a cut and significant swelling on her forehead.
A Sandusky doctor told police the child’s injuries did not align with the mother’s story, the report said. The doctor agreed to admit the baby overnight to keep an eye on her injuries.
The woman did not say why she delayed seeking medical treatment for the child, the report said. When officers asked her why she sought treatment in Sandusky, the woman said she called a friend from Sandusky for a ride, but she offered no other reasoning, the report said.
Officers have asked social workers to look into the case.
