Grandma tried to cover up dog attack, police say
Booked with cruelty to a juvenile
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted by River Parishes Hospital regarding a 6-year-old handicapped child who was in the emergency room with severe lacerations to her face.
Doctors said that the injury was consistent with a dog attack.
During the investigation, authorities say they learned that the child was in the custody of her grandmother, Lynda Bowman, 67, when the injuries occurred.
Bowman, who lives in LaPlace, was house/dog sitting for her son in Hahnville at the time.
The injured girl’s mother told police that Bowman dropped the child off to her with a large bandage covering the child’s face.
According to authorities, she told the mother that the child had climbed on an outdoor furniture chair and had fallen off, which caused the injuries.
Bowman did not tell the mother that the child was bitten by a dog, and did not seek medical attention for the severe injury, which showed signs of infection, authorities say.
Bowman was arrested on May 26.
