PHOENIX - Authorities say a Phoenix woman is in custody for allegedly abusing her 2-year-old son.
Phoenix police said Monday that 21-year-old Rickesha Jovani Burns is being held without bond on suspicion of sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse.
Police officers were called to a residence about 8 p.m. Sunday and found Burns holding her son.
They say the child was crying and bleeding and was immediately transported to a Phoenix hospital.
Police say Burns told them her son had been playing with a 12-year-old boy at a park and he had done something to the child.
Doctors say the child had injuries around his rectal area and he needed surgery to remove a foreign object.
Police say they found no evidence that the child was assaulted at the park.
