On Thursday (02/02), Mohave County Sheriff’s Office Deputies were contacted by a 22-year-old female, who advised that her 4-month-old female baby had severe bruising after picking her up from being baby-sat. It was learned that the mother had her boyfriend, identified as Anthony Bone, 24 of Kingman, baby-sit her child as she was assisting her mother while she was recovering from surgery. The child’s mother received a call from Bone stating that she needed to pick up her child and that he (Bone) was upset but provided no information.
The mother stated that she found severe bruising to the child’s buttocks and the back of the child’s legs when she picked her up. Multiple text messages between Bone, the mother and another relative were observed where Bone was expressing concern for the child’s welfare. These text messages were provided to Detectives. Bone was contacted and denied any involvement, saying he knew nothing of the bruising or how it got there. Bone additionally stated that he had swatted the child as she was crying but never hit her or caused the bruising. Bone stated the text messages were about his concern for the baby and about his (Bone’s) mental health. Bone also apologized to detectives several times “for what he did”.
Anthony Bone was placed into custody and booked into the Mohave County Adult Detention Facility for felony Child Abuse. The mother, the involved 4-month-old, and a second child (3 YOA) were contacted by Department of Child Safety and placed in a safe shelter. This investigation is ongoing.
