BROOKLYN - A Brooklyn mother is facing several charges as doctors treat her 2-year-old son, who is severely bruised after an alleged beating.
Yayun Weng, 27, of Sunset Park, allegedly beat her son with a bamboo stick so badly that more than 90 percent of his body is covered in bruises. She is being charged with two counts of assault, endangering the welfare of a child and menacing, among others.
Police say she brought her son to Maimonides Medical Center Thursday night to be treated, but doctors called them after discovering the wounds.
