Man Accused of Biting Stepchild
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — A 27-year-old Davenport man has been accused of biting his 4-year-old stepchild in order to punish the child.
The Quad-City Times says James Darby was arrested Tuesday and charged with felony child endangerment.
An arrest affidavit says Darby told the child's mother that he bit the child in order to get the child to stop biting.
Davenport Police Detective Mark Dinneweth said in the affidavit that photos showed at least two of the child's injuries looked like bite marks.
Scott County Jail records say Darby remained in custody on Wednesday, pending $5,000 bail. Online court records don't list the name of his attorney.
