4-Year-Old Tells Police His Father Burned Him With Lighter

Daycare workers spotted a burn mark on the stomach of a 4-year-old boy and called police. The boy told investigators his father burned him.

The boy, who turned 4 a couple days before the burn was spotted by daycare workers, told police that his dad burned him and made a gesture with his fingers like he was using a lighter. The burn was on the boys stomach. Daycare workers were doing a well-being check on the boy, according to reports.

Reports state that the boys mother has custody and while the investigation is being completed by police, he remains in her care in Omaha.

Police say they have not made an arrest at this point.
