Lorain mom charged with child endangering after police are called to school

LORAIN — A Lorain mother is facing a child endangering charge after police were sent to Washington Elementary School for a report that her child had multiple suspicious injuries.

Dibacco

Summer Dibacco, 27, was arrested Thursday in relation to a report made April 15.

On that date, police met with the principal of Washington Elementary School, John Monteleone, who said he was notified that one of the students had several injuries to his legs, buttocks, face and ears. A caseworker from Lorain County Children Services arrived and conducted an initial investigation and then contacted police, according to a Lorain police report.

While police were waiting for Dibacco to pick up her child, the child ate two meals in the school’s cafeteria, and he told police he had hardly eaten anything in three days and only had one french fry on Saturday. Police said Dibacco never came to pick up the boy.

Because of the extent of his injuries, the boy was taken to Mercy Regional Medical Center, where he ate another lunch. Police said the child was later taken to the Nord Center, and police began an investigation.

A report on Dibacco’s arrest was not available.

Dibacco was taken to Lorain County Jail and arraigned Friday at Lorain Municipal Court.
