SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – A Spartanburg woman has been arrested after police say she whipped her child with a phone cord, leaving marks on his face, back and legs.
Shamara Quiate Brewton, 24, has been charged with cruelty to children.
School officials at Cleveland Academy of Leadership reported the alleged abuse to police on Friday.
Police found the boy in the nurse’s station with a large red mark on the side of his face, according to a police report.
The boy told an officer he also had marks on his back and legs, and the officer noted red marks similar to the ones on his face and head along with scratches that appeared older.
The report states that Brewton showed no remorse and told a police officer that she whipped the victim’s “ass.”
Brewton was booked into the Spartanburg County Detention Center on Saturday.
The boy and two other children in the home were placed into emergency protective custody.
