AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -

Julia Ann Baitmon was arrested Tuesday accused of beating a friend's child with a plastic bat.

The investigation began after the Richmond County Sheriff's Office received a call from the mother of the child.

According to an incident report, the mother had asked Baitmon to watch her children for a few days. When Baitmon returned the children, the mother noticed her 6 year old walking with a limp. After questioning her son, the son told his mom he had been spanked by Baitman with a plastic bat.

The victim had welt marks along his leg and buttocks. Investigators were called to the scene and the six year old was transported to the hospital for treatment.

Baitmon was arrested at her residence without incident.
