SACRAMENTO, CA - A Sacramento man was arrested on suspicion of felony child endangerment after he allegedly hit and kicked his mentally disabled teenage daughter.
The 17-year-old girl, was also found to have marks on her wrists as if she had been restrained and burns on her body, according to Sacramento County sheriff's Sgt. Jason Ramos.
The sheriff's department was alerted to the girl just after 11:30 last Friday night at the Markston Apartments on the 1700 block of Markston Road. A caller reported seeing a man who looked like he was assaulting the teen as the pair walked, Ramos said. When the responding deputy arrived, he reported locating the teen in question locked inside of a car.
Ramos said the girl was not tied up but couldn't or was unable to understand the deputy's request to unlock the car door. Fire department personnel came, unlocked the car and transported the girl to the hospital.
