Officer Erin Spilker said the girl’s mother called 911 just after 2 p.m. Monday to report the abuse after getting her daughter back from a weekend visit and finding her with bruises all over.

Police called for an ambulance to the 1400 block of E Street after seeing the child had an apparent broken leg. She was taken to a Lincoln hospital for treatment, including  surgery to repair the injured leg.

On Tuesday just before 1 p.m., Ramon Garcia Quijas Jr. turned himself in to investigators, who arrested him on suspicion of child abuse causing serious injury.
