Iowa Baby Sitter Accused Of Beating Child With Belt


By Richard Pratt

DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A 22-year-old Davenport woman has been accused of using a belt on a 10-year-old child she was baby-sitting.

The Quad-City Times reports that Amber Holcomb was arrested on Friday. She's charged with felony child endangerment with bodily injury.

Police say Holcomb used the belt to strike the child's bare legs on May 2. A police affidavit says the blows left red marks and bruising.

Scott County Jail records say Holcomb remained in custody on Tuesday. Her attorney didn't immediately return a call from The Associated Press.
