Police became involved earlier this week when the 8-year-old girl showed up at school with visible bruises. Police were contacted and she told an investigator she had been punched by a family member who also “ threw her across” a room.  She described the man as “an angry person.”

She identified the man as 18-year-old Jason Nabors.
