In a press release from the Daytona Beach Police Department, officers said Karina Mustafa, 29, was booked into the Volusia County jail on a charge of aggravated child abuse stemming from a June 7 incident.

Through further investigation, it was determined that Mustafa was responsible for the near-drowning.

According to the arrest affidavit obtained by FOX 35 Orlando, the toddler was playing outside in front of the lawn of the residence, when the child knocked over some potted plants, causing the child to become covered in dirt and muddy water.

Mustafa then got into an argument with the toddler’s father following the accident, which then prompted her to take the child and lock them in the bathroom together to allegedly clean off the mess. 

Arrest records indicated that Mustafa submerged the toddler’s face in bathtub water before unlocking the door when the father found the child unconscious in the bathtub.
