Deputies investigate possible child abuse

TAHLEQUAH — Cherokee County sheriff’s deputies were called last week to investigate a case of possible child abuse.

Deputies went to Tahlequah City Hospital, where a 1-year-old child had been admitted. The child had three arm fractures and burns between the legs. State officials have been notified.

In other matters, Dale Wilcox spoke to deputies Friday about a break-in at Caney Ridge Store. Thieves took two 30-packs of Keystone Light, three 6-packs of Bud Light, a pack of Budweiser and two cartons of Marlboro Lights.

Alisha Smallen-Caro told deputies Thursday that her daughter was on a swing and another child threw rocks at her.

Kimberly Shuma told deputies Thursday that her son was assaulted by a juvenile girl on a playground.

Monica Stark filed a threats report Thursday.

Bailey Poteet told deputies last week that someone used a vehicle without permission and also took several items out of the vehicle.
