A FOSTER mother poured hot water on a 5-year-old boy who was being unruly in Barangay Linao, Minglanilla last Saturday morning.

Victor (not his real name) suffered burns in the head, nape, back and lower portion of his body, said PO Shiela Pagapong in a phone interview.

The police officer said the suspect, Ana Suba, also hit the victim’s face with a roll of thread and threw a pair of scissors at Victor’s playmate, who was not seriously hurt.

Suba, who owns a tailoring business, told the police she was irked because Victor was playing with another boy while she was cooking their meal at 10 a.m.

Pagapong said Victor’s parents are separated and the boy was left in the care of his grandmother, who later gave him to Suba.

She said Suba will be charged for violating Republic Act 7610, or the Anti-Child Abuse Law.
