A woman reported to Sumner Police that her 3-year-old daughter had said, in her way, that her father had touched her inappropriately. Her mom noted that she was wetting her pants more frequently and the little girl told her that whenever she wetted her pants her father would change and touch her when he was taking care of her.
Police and Child Protective services interviewed the little girl, who couldn’t give them any specific info. The father denied all charges and said he was a responsible citizen who never touched his child that way and that he wanted to sue his ex for defamation.
There was no evidence of abuse found and the case was closed.

Someone called 9-11 to report that she observed a woman in her late 20s punching a little girl, who was approximately 5 years old. They were in a parked car outside the Pine Vista Apartments.
The mother told police via her daughter, who translated for her, that the little girl didn’t want to get into the car, so they were struggling to get her in and it “looked worse than it was.” The officer didn’t see any bruising or anything that the child needed to be removed from. The case was referred to CPS for follow-up.
