EVERETT — An Everett woman told police she broke her 2-year-old son’s elbow and twice bit him because she was angry.
A pediatrician told police the boy “is clearly a victim of child abuse,” according to a police affidavit filed Wednesday in Everett District Court.
The doctor told detectives the mother’s explanations for her son’s injuries were “inadequate.”
The woman, 22, was arrested Tuesday and jailed for investigation of assault.
