A 36-YEAR-OLD factory worker of Saddle Road, San Juan was granted $30,000 bail with a surety when she appeared before a justice of the Peace on Friday charged with cruelty to a child.
The woman was arrested and charged by WPC Samuel of the North-Eastern Division Child Protection Unit (CPU) after a report made in September.
Samuel discovered that the girl had injuries to her upper right arm and right breast after an argument with her mother.
The victim said after the argument at their home, her mother went into the kitchen, where she took up a kettle full boiling water and threw it on her daughter.
The investigation, supervised by acting Supt Natasha George, Ag ASP Sookdeo and acting Insp Davidson, led to the mother being charged with one count of cruelty to a child. She is due to return to court on December 22, a police press release said.
