Danbury police are holding two adults after school authorities and the Department of Children and Families reported serious injuries to the left foot of an eight-year-old-child.  The child had blisters and other injuries serious enough to require hospital treatment.

Police say the child first said a male visitor to his home had placed something in his shoe, then,  tried to change the story after a visit by a female relative.  But police determined the evidence supported the original account.

The woman,  30-year-old Vilma Samaniego,  is charged with interfering with police,  hindering prosecution, and risk of injury to a minor.  Police identified the man as 44-year-old Nelson Samaniego of New Haven.  He’s charged with assault, cruelty to persons and risk of injury to a minor,  and is held in lieu of a quarter million dollars bond.
