TARPON SPRINGS (CBSMiami/AP) — A Florida man is accused of biting his girlfriend’s two young boys, and their mother is charged with neglect, after doctors discovered dozens of scars and bite marks on their bodies.
The Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office says Rashawn Davis was arrested Thursday. He faces two charges of aggravated child abuse and was being held in jail Friday on a $50,000 bond.
Detectives say the 2-year-old boy had eight bite marks on his back, buttock and face and 35 lacerations on his back. The 3-year-old boy had a bite mark on his buttock.
Detectives say Davis admitted to biting the boys out of frustration.
Last August, the boys were removed from the home Davis shared with his girlfriend, Andrea Fulton, after a domestic dispute.
Fulton is charged with neglect.
