A San Mateo baby-sitter arrested last week on child abuse charges for injuries allegedly found on a 4-month-old infant in her care is scheduled to be arraigned Aug. 13, San Mateo County District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe said Wednesday.
Burlingame police arrested 55-year-old Kay Arndt on child abuse charges July 11, one day after police were made aware that the infant in the woman’s care was found with suspicious marks on her face, Capt. Mike Matteucci said.
The July 10 incident occurred when the mother of the infant returned after running some errands and found strange marks on the baby’s face, according to police. A forensic medical examination revealed that the baby suffered recent abuse, according to Matteucci.
Arndt was arrested at her San Mateo home July 11 and booked into the San Mateo County Jail on suspicion of child abuse. She posted $50,000 bail the same day of her arrest, according to Wagstaffe.
Arndt is scheduled to appear in court at 9 a.m. Aug. 13.
