A local foster parent is accused of hitting a 4-year-old girl in the face.

Kimberly Vollmer was arraigned on charges of criminal mistreatment and assault Friday in Multnomah County Circuit Court.

Court documents show that a report was filed on Jan. 13 due to a visible injury on the girl's face. When asked how she got the injury, the girl replied that her foster mother hit her.

A detective met with Vollmer, who told her the injuries were caused by a change in laundry detergent, according to court records.

Police said Vollmer then suggested the girl was just remembering abuse by her biological mother.

Detectives informed Vollmer that doctors determined the injuries were inflicted on the girl. Police also interviewed other children in the home who said they witnessed Vollmer hit the girl.

Vollmer is a foster parent to four children, including the alleged victim.

Police said Vollmer eventually admitted striking the child in the face.

Court documents show Vollmer said she had just put all the children down for a nap, but the 4-year-old girl wanted to watch TV.

Vollmer said the girl began screaming at the top of her lungs and she was worried it would wake up the other children. Vollmer said she became frustrated, according to police records, and hit the girl with her left hand.

She said the girl then quieted down, according to investigators.

On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being the highest, police said Vollmer admitted the force she used in striking the girl was a 10.

Vollmer was released from jail and she's due back in court Feb. 8.

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie

Save A Life by Angie Kassabie
I URGE ALL MY FRIENDS TO READ & SHARE THIS; YOU COULD SAVE A LOVED ONES LIFE BY KNOWING THIS SIMPLE INFORMATION!!! Stroke has a new indicator! They say if you forward this to ten people, you stand a chance of saving one life. Will you send this along? Blood Clots/Stroke - They Now Have a Fourth Indicator, the Tongue: During a BBQ, a woman stumbled and took a little fall - she assured everyone that she was fine (they offered to call paramedics) ...she said she had just tripped over a brick because of her new shoes. They got her cleaned up and got her a new plate of food. While she appeared a bit shaken up, Jane went about enjoying herself the rest of the evening. Jane's husband called later telling everyone that his wife had been taken to the hospital - (at 6:00 PM Jane passed away.) She had suffered a stroke at the BBQ. Had they known how to identify the signs of a stroke, perhaps Jane would be with us today. Some don't die. They end up in a helpless, hopeless condition instead. It only takes a minute to read this. A neurologist says that if he can get to a stroke victim within 3 hours he can totally reverse the effects of a stroke...totally. He said the trick was getting a stroke recognized, diagnosed, and then getting the patient medically cared for within 3 hours, which is tough. >>RECOGNIZING A STROKE<< Thank God for the sense to remember the '3' steps, STR. Read and Learn! Sometimes symptoms of a stroke are difficult to identify. Unfortunately, the lack of awareness spells disaster. The stroke victim may suffer severe brain damage when people nearby fail to recognize the symptoms of a stroke. Now doctors say a bystander can recognize a stroke by asking three simple questions: S *Ask the individual to SMILE. T *Ask the person to TALK and SPEAK A SIMPLE SENTENCE (Coherently) (i.e. Chicken Soup) R *Ask him or her to RAISE BOTH ARMS. If he or she has trouble with ANY ONE of these tasks, call emergency number immediately and describe the symptoms to the dispatcher. New Sign of a Stroke -------- Stick out Your Tongue NOTE: Another 'sign' of a stroke is this: Ask the person to 'stick' out his tongue. If the tongue is 'crooked', if it goes to one side or the other that is also an indication of a stroke. A cardiologist says if everyone who gets this e-mail sends it to 10 people; you can bet that at least one life will be saved. I have done my part. Will you?
