At 2:00 a.m., SS became aware of a
domestic dispute between this teenager and adult members of the family with
whom he was living. The child was taken to a youth shelter after the police
were called to the home. Both the child and the family refused to consider his
return to the home.
The child has a bruise on his forehead and bruises on his scalp as a
result of the altercation in the home. The shelter nurse reported the injuries
werent serious. Other professionals involved indicate the situation is
volatile and the child shouldnt return to the home. The childs biological
parents both reside out of state and refuse to provide care for their son.
