Bond set $1 million for Toledo mom accused of hurting baby


Avery Glenn Bacon, 6 months old, is not expected to survive traumatic brain injuries allegedly inflicted by his mother, Amanda Bacon.


A 6-month-old Toledo boy is not expected to survive after he was allegedly thrown against a hard surface, causing multiple skull fractures, according to police.

The boy's mother, Amanda Bacon, 25, of 504 W. Alexis Rd., was arraigned today in Toledo Municipal Court, charged with felonious assault and child endangering. Her bond was set at $1 million.

The child's injuries were reported to Toledo police at 1 a.m. Monday when the baby was taken by his mother and another person to Mercy St. Anne Hospital. From there, the child, Avery Glynn Bacon, was transferred to Mercy St. Vincent Medical Center and then taken by helicopter to the Mott Children's Hospital at the University of Michigan, said police Sgt. Tim Noble.

The alleged abuse occurred at Ms. Bacon's apartment, the sergeant said.

No other children were at the apartment when the alleged abuse happened, police said.

Three other adults charged with endangering children were arraigned in Toledo Municipal Court on Monday.

Monty Martin, 37, of 2922 Manchester, is charged with one count each of endangering children, obstructing official business, and assault. He was ordered to be held in the jail in lieu of $295,000 bond.

According to documents filed in court, Toledo police allege that the suspect grabbed a six-month-old boy from the boy's mother's arms and threw the boy into a playpen. He also allegedly punched his girlfriend, the mother of the child, in the face several times.

Sirmar Brown, 24, of 3517 Hilltop Blvd., was ordered to be held in lieu of $100,000 bond, charged with two counts of endangering children.

Charging documents allege that Mr. Brown left his two children -- 6 months and 18 months old -- alone for several hours. The mother left the residence at about 6 p.m. to go to work, and when she returned at 3:30 a.m., the children were home alone, court documents state.

Mr. Brown plead not guilty to both charges.

A man who allegedly beat his 9-year-old grandson with a belt was ordered to be held in the jail in lieu of $100,000 bond.

John Garcia, 47, of 353 W. Delaware Ave., is charged with endangering children and assault. Court documents allege that the suspect, who had custody of the boy, hit his grandson on his face, arms, neck, shoulder, and back.
