The El Centro Police Department today was expected to seek charges against a woman arrested on suspicion of child endangerment and being an accessory after the fact in connection with the scalding of her 2-year-old son.
Police were going to seek a warrant today for the arrest of the woman's 17-year-old boyfriend, who is wanted in connection with the scalding but so far has managed to evade arrest.
On Friday police arrested Arisbel Ubence, 25, and booked her into the county jail with bail set at $35,000. Police alleged her son had been scalded and had bruising on the lower portion of his body.
Police were contacted about the case about 1:10 p.m. Friday after a friend found the baby with the injuries at the mother's residence in the 500 block of Olive Avenue.
