Richmond police arrested a man for fourth-degree assault (child abuse) Tuesday afternoon after officers were called to a child care business, where it was reported a child had significant bruising on their body.
Officers spoke with a Department for Community Based Services worker who told officers the child had significant handprint bruising, along with other bruises, according to a citation. Police also learned the child has choked and bit other children while at day care within the past month.
Through investigation and through questioning the child, officers determined Daniel Sisco Sr. seemed to be the one who hurt the child, the citation states.
Sisco went to the child care business to talk with the DCBS worker and officers around noon, the citation states. When asked if he knew about the bruises, Sisco admitted he had spanked the child. Sisco was then taken to the police department for further questioning.
Sisco told police he probably used too much force when spanking the child, the citation states.
Sisco was taken to the Madison County Detention Center, where he remained Wednesday afternoon, according to online jail records.
