Woman Bites Childrens Faces At Bookstore
46-year-old Polly Beltramo was arrested in Mountain View, CA after she allegedly bit two small children in the face. The incident reportedly happened in a bookstore. The owner of that bookstore spoke with KGO about what he says he saw.
"Some other woman came up to the lady's little girl and then the girl started running to her mother and said that lady bit me, and she had a huge welp on her cheek. ... Suddenly the little boy, who's just a couple months old, started screaming and they went to him and his cheek was bleeding."
Spectators call her a crazy person - and luckily police were able to nab her before she got too far. The San Jose Mercury News explains what happened next.
"The suspect fled, but officers caught her at the Starbucks at 750 Castro St. The mother positively identified the suspect. The suspect ... was arrested on suspicion of felony child abuse and will be transferred to county jail..."
MoutainView Patch writer Claudia Cruz says she was able to get an exclusive interview with the mother after the incident. Here's what Cruz says the mother told her...
"I started screaming and then she started screaming ... It was the closest I ever came to fainting. I'm horrified and don't think I can ever go back in there."
CNN reports -- Beltramo has been charged with felony child abuse.
