A 29-year-old Lake Charles woman has been charged with cruelty to a juvenile, authorities said.
Calcasieu Parish Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Kim Myers said Nicole M. Henning, 2409 Elm St., was arrested Wednesday after the department received a complaint from a local elementary school.
“Deputies learned that Henning struck a 7-year-old family member with her hand, causing large bruises and red marks on the right side of the boys’ face,” Myers said Friday. “Deputies also observed multiple bruises on the left side of the victim’s face, head, arm, neck and ear.”
Myers said Henning confirmed she struck the victim when questioned by detectives.
Bond was set at $25,000 by Judge David Ritchie.
The victim was removed from the home and placed with family members, Myers said.
