    AZ - Corrina Davis for child abuse, Mesa, 2010

    Mesa woman arrested after 2-year-old found locked in closet

    Last Update: 3:27 pm

    Mesa Police Sgt. Ed Wessing said a Mesa justice court constable went to the apartment near Longmore Street and Pecos Road around 5 p.m. to serve the notice.

    When no one answered the door, the constable went inside to secure the apartment and lock the residents out and as he checked for occupants, he noticed a chair against the bedroom door preventing it from being opened from the inside.

    When he went into the bedroom, the constable found the 2-year-old boy in the closet sleeping on a mattress.

    the boy had bruises on his face, ears and hip. He also had a chipped tooth and bruised lip.

    Wessing said Davis admitted to leaving her son in the closet while she went to work, saying that her boyfriend told her he'd be home in 20 minutes.

    Oh, my heart just breaks for the little guy. Hopefully, he'll be warm and safe and fed tonight. I'll bet that Constable was mighty thankful that he went in to check the house. Even though the little fellow was probably terrified, I imagine the Constable knew just what to do to calm his fears.

    I second your comments. This little guy has had an unfair start in life.

    If society wants to do right by this child than he should never, ever, have to see, let alone live, with this woman again.

    Aveion, Gabriel, Marc, Hasanni......we should not be finding this little ones name on that list next year.

    what is WRONG with people??
    This is all my opinion, which is subject to change with more information, if the wind changes direction, or if I wake up in a different mood...

    No kidding! I am sooo incredibly tired of the bio parents rights overriding the best interests of the child!

    I pray this little guy has a new start in life and either his mother seriously gets her crap together or he finds a forever home with a loving family. Who would leave their kid alone? Go to work late, but never leave your kid alone!

    Just a comment from a Mom of many. I've seen the heart-warming outpouring of love and care for the thousands of Haitian orphans. Their needs are many and I applaud all attempts to help them. We've adopted once from Haiti and I've traveled there several times to bring other children out. My husband is actually preparing to go to Haiti to work in the rebuilding. But, please.....if you are considering adopting or fostering a child, consider adopting here in the states.

    Our family was so put off by the ridiculous red tape that we adopted twice from Korea and once from Haiti before we got "tough" enough to wade through the nasty gauntlet of domestic adoption. Isn't that sad? There are over 400,000 children just like this poor little guy on the track for adoption in the states.

    If you can't adopt or foster right now, consider volunteering to help ferry foster kids to doctor appts., do respite for adoptive parents, or even make a small donation to your local foster parent's association or Children's Advocacy Center. It's the least we can do. All the world's children deserve our concern. They are our future.

    Trust me, I tried my best. I couldn't adopt them all. There's plenty of wonderful and unique and challenging and vibrant children to go around!! You too, can have a kid, who doesn't look a thing like you and who has gifts which could have never come from your gene pool, calling you from college to tell you how criminology class and soccer practice went and "Oh, by the way, I love you Mommy". I'm the most fortunate woman alive.

    Your boyfriend is going to be home in twenty minutes?

    So, you lock the kid in a closet? How do you justify that? What do you say? "Look sweetie I have to go to work, but Fred will be home in twenty minutes so get in that dark, dirty closet and I'll lock you in"?

    What if there was a fire? What if some freak broke in? Plus who do we blame? Mom or "Fred"? It's obvious she's not taking responsibility.

    On top of the locking him in the closet, it is obvious that he is being beaten because of the bruises. I dount this is the first time they have done this. i hope he finds a good home away from her.
    Happy New Years

    My little one will be two in a week. I don't even close the bathroom door because I don't want her out of my sight for a minute. Leaving her alone for 20 minutes? Never. The mom's story sounds fishy and weak. I think the baby is probably put in the closet for a long longer than that and on a regular basis.

    That story just makes me sick. I hope they get that little boy into a loving home and that he can overcome the abuse he has already had to endure.....

    Aw, that poor little guy. My baby turns two tomorrow. Like Mr. E, I don't let her or my 4-year-old out of my sight. I can't imagine how upset she would be being locked in a room alone, not being able to get out. That's so sad. I hope he gets a good home with people who will show him what it's like to be safe and loved.

    The fact that he was sleeping on the mattress instead of hysterically banging on the door makes me think he is used to this.
    20 minutes....yeah, like 10 times a day.

    I hope she rots and the child overcomes. Poor little one. My two year old freaks out if his bedroom sticks a little in the morning. Locking him in a closet, even when I badly needed child care, didn't even cross my mind. Sick, sad, pathetic excuse for a mother.
    JMO. Unless there's a link, I can't prove it.

    How many employers would be understanding of taking your two year old with you and letting him hang out until the BF showed up--in an emergency, of course? I know there's some who wouldn't tolerate it but many would. Trade off child care time with a neighbor you've checked out. Call the local DHS office and look into child care vouchers. There's a million ways to deal with a challenge every parent faces quite frequently. There's a lot more to this story than 20 minutes. How'd this little guy get the chipped tooth and the bruises? DHS knows how to tell the difference between innocent bruises and abuse. We've not heard the entire story yet.
