Child abuse reported

By Katherine Wartell

A Manhattan mother filed a report for child abuse after she found marks on her 5-year-old daughter’s arms that appeared to be consistent with abuse.

Lt. Josh Kyle said the woman believes another family member committed the abuse.

He said the incident occurred in the central portion of Manhattan.

The investigation is ongoing.
