A Cleveland mother has been arrested on suspicion of disciplining her 9-year-old daughter by tying her up in a chair naked and beating her.
The mother was arrested Monday night in the 400 block of East 123rd Street.
The child's father reported the crime. He does not live at the east side home, but 19 Action News has learned the mother called him to help her discipline their child.
The little girl has bruises all over her body.
Reporter Ed Gallek has learned police have the chair, and it has straps on it.
The mother is being held in jail pending follow-up investigation by Cleveland Child Abuse Detectives. Felony charges are possible.
