Women charged with felony child abuse
in separate cases

PORT ORCHARD, WA  –  In unrelated incidents, two women were charged Tuesday in Kitsap Superior Court with felony child abuse.

One was charged for leaving a 1-year-old girl in a hot car while attempting to shoplift at the Silverdale Target and another for beating her 6-year-old son with a belt after he got into a fight at school.

Sheriff’s deputies were called Sept. 4 by employees of a private school in East Bremerton reporting that a student had asked to stand instead of sit, as it hurt him to sit because of “significant welts and marks” on his backside after his mother disciplined him, according to court documents.

Deputies spoke with his mother, 30, who said the boy had been assaulting other children and she wanted to stop this behavior.  She gave deputies a synthetic leather belt with metal features.

The woman pleaded not guilty to a count of third-degree assault of a child.

The boy and a sibling were placed in protective custody.

Deputies were called Sunday to the Silverdale Target after security guards there said a woman, 24, they knew to repeatedly shoplift from other Target stores had selected some bottles of alcohol.  She was then joined by a man, 56, who is believed to have gone into the store to warn her security was present, according to court documents.

The woman left behind the items but when the two went back to the car, deputies met them and attempted to serve them with a notice that they had been banned from returning to any Target.

While at the car, deputies noticed 1-year-old girl in the back seat who appeared to be sweating.  A deputy wrote in documents that it was 75 degrees out and the temperature inside the car was likely much higher.  Medics were called and said the girl was lethargic and needed to be taken to the hospital for an evaluation.

Deputies were told by a security guard that, according to surveillance camera footage taken inside the store, the two adults left the baby in the car unattended for about 23 minutes.  The girl was turned over to Child Protective Services after she was released from the hospital.

Both the man and woman were arrested and booked into the Kitsap County Jail. They pleaded not guilty to second-degree criminal mistreatment and reckless endangerment.

“We just thought they were taking a little vacation,” the suspects’ family member told KFOR.

According to detectives, the abuse had been happening for years.

“The crimes stem back to when this child was just four years old.” Sgt. Megan Morgan with the Oklahoma City Police Department said.

Police say they made several visits to the Inman home over the summer, finding “content on a cell phone” and a “sex toy”.

According to a police report, Matthew and Robert were home at the time, so officers interviewed them.

A family member told KFOR on camera the two haven’t been home in months, but then changed his story.

“They just left, and the son just told us to come here and stay here at his house,” the family member said.

“You didn’t know there was this alleged sexual assault going on?” KFOR reporter Peyton Yager asked.

“No,” the family member said.  “We did not. I am sorry.”

Robert and Matthew Inman each face a $1 million bond when arrested.
