A Fremont woman has been arrested after Indiana State Police said she bit a 3-year-old girl on the leg as a form of punishment.
Carolyn A. Bowdish, 29, was charged with battery with bodily injury involving a minor child, state police at Fort Wayne said in a statement. They said she was held in the Steuben County Jail on $5,000 bond.
State police said they initiated an investigation in June after the injury was noticed by an off-duty state police detective at a family gathering. After speaking with the victim's father, they said, the detective contacted both his supervisor and Child Protective Services.
