A California mother allegedly carved a letter “S” onto her 15-month-old’s buttocks, Sacramento police said.
Sergaye Lafayette, 23, remained in custody at the Sacramento County Jail on Thursday afternoon.
A doctor at the UC Davis Children’s Hospital’s CAARE Diagnostic and Treatment Center called officials about the scar.
The mutilation appears to have taken place about a week ago, according to a police report.
The child has been placed into protective custody, police said.
Police said she had been taking care of her three children, who she does not have custody of. The children were taken to the medical center for standard check-ups.
That’s when the doctor found the “S” carving on the 15-month-old.
It’s unknown what kind of instrument was used to make the wound.
According to police, Lafayette was pulled over August 10th in Sacramento.
She had outstanding warrants, including a felony burglary charge and a felony charge for unlawful use of personal identifying information.
She was booked on a felony charge of endangering the life or health of child.
Lafayette is being held at the Sacramento County Main Jail on a $120,689 bail.
