KINGMAN – Kingman Police arrested Charles Thomas Hansen, 24, and Samantha Jo Jones, 20, both of Kingman, on felony charges of alleged child abuse Tuesday.

According to Deputy Chief Rusty Cooper, the arrests came after police received allegations of suspected child abuse of a 2- year-old boy. The investigation revealed Hansen, Jones’ live-in boyfriend, had bitten the child, Jones’ son, numerous times over the previous weeks. Investigators observed at least 12 different bite marks on the child’s body.

Police said Jones suspected the abuse and failed to report it. Both suspects admitted involvement and were booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility. The child was removed and is in the care of the Arizona Department of Child Safety.

Years ago we reported to CPS that my daughters boyfriend was biting our granddaughter. He even admitted he was doing that and they told us it was fine. NOTE: he is an illegal immigrant so I guess that ok with kingman's cps. My advice take it to a JURY!

Those are real parents right there. Especially the father. Must make him feel like a man hurting small children.

People who hurt children or animals are a special breed of sub-human. These kind of people have much more wrong with them than what you actually find out.
