Mother, Boyfriend Charged After School Finds Makeup Covering Girl's Injuries
DAYTON -- Police arrested a mother and her boyfriend for child endangering after the man admitted to whipping one of the woman's two children.
Dayton Police say the injured child's school on Tuesday noticed several bruises and injuries on the 7-year-old girl, who has cerebral palsy and small gout. Her right eye also was swollen shut and covered with makeup.
According to police, the woman's boyfriend, Rictor Dansby, 30, admitted to whipping the girl on Monday for not doing her homework.
Police say when they responded to the Lakespur Drive home they found a loaded handgun in a bedroom next to the bedroom shared by the girl and her twin brother.
Police said they observed bruising and swelling on the girl's right eye, and "injuries throughout her body."
The two children were transported to Dayton Children's Hospital for evaluation and Children Services created a "safety plan" for them. Arrangements were made for the children to stay with their mother's sister.
The gun was confiscated and entered as evidence.
The children's mother, Moriah Foster, 36, was charged with child endangering. Her boyfriend, Dansby, faces two counts of child endangering, one for reportedly whipping the child and another for having the loaded weapon in reach of the children.
Tina Jennings lives close to where a 7-year-old with Cerebral Palsy was beaten and whipped with a belt.
"My heart goes out to her. I'm saddened to hear it got to this point because that child doesn't deserve that. She's already going through challenges."
Police said the girl's injuries were discovered at school. A nurse at the girl's Dayton elementary school noticed bruising on the child and called Montgomery County Children's Services.
According to police, her eye was swollen shut, and there were black and blue marks and welts all over her body.
The little girl had make-up on her eye, trying to conceal the bruising.
Police interviewed the mother's boyfriend, Rictor Dansby, who admitted to whipping the girl with a belt for not doing her homework.
Jennings said this isn't the first time police have been called to the home.
"That is just awful. I knew there was problems over there, but I didn't know it was the children being harmed."
In their home, police also found a loaded handgun in a bedroom closet.
Police arrested Dansby for child endangering for the beating, and for having a loaded gun near children.
"We'll be praying for them." Jennings said. "We've been praying for them."
Another 7-year-old lives in the home. Both children are now staying with relatives.
