A mother was arrested after she shoved a sex toy up her 2-year-old son’s rectum.
Rickesha Burns, 21, from Phoenix, Arizona was jailed after she allegedly pushed a vibrator so far up her 2-year-year-old son, that surgery was needed to get it out.
Phoenix police were called to Burns residence for “unknown trouble" at home. When officers arrived, they found the 2-year-old crying hysterically and bleeding from the rectum. The child was immediately taken to Phoenix Children's Hospital for examination.
At the hospital, doctors advised detectives that a foreign object, such as a sex toy or vibarator had been inserted into the child's rectum. Doctors also told detectives that the child has injuries around his rectum, according to doctors someone apparently used a hanger in an effort to remove the object from the child’s rectum, but was unsuccessful. The boy required surgery to remove the object from his rectum.
This is not the first time that child protective services was called to the home, according to court proceedings. The woman was investigated in 2011, and her child was taken away for some time, but was returned to her and no charges were filed at that time.
“It makes me so sad to hear child abuse cases like this one. How can a mother hurt her child so badly? I cannot imagine how much this child suffered at the hands of his mother before this incident became public,” child advocate Betty Evans, 34, from Queens, New York told YourJewishNews.com.
When detectives interviewed Burns, she told them she had been in a park with her son earlier in the day, while she was checking a text message for about 10 seconds, a boy, whom she did not know did something to her son and made her son cry.
Officials did not find her story credible. She was booked into jail on charges of sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse.
