A family says their toddler was abused by a babysitter, but no charges have been filed. They hope a viral Facebook post will change that.
Alicia Quinney had a rare night out with her boyfriend in March.
She left her one-year-old son, Jacob, in the care of a family friend for two hours. When they came back home, they found the babysitter asleep on the couch and Jacob crying.
It wasn’t until the next morning that Quinney realized something was very wrong.
“The next morning, it was 8:30 and that’s when I saw Jacob. The first thing I saw was a black eye. First thing I saw,” Quinney told KATU.
Detectives say they believe the babysitter is responsible for the bruises.
With no arrest, the parents turned to social media, detailing their ordeal.
The DA’s offices says an investigation in on-going.
