Fontana Foster Parents Arrested For Child Abuse, Endangerment

FONTANA (CBSLA.com) — A Fontana couple faced charges Thursday for allegedly abusing their foster child, police said.

Robert and Emily Ismael were arrested Monday for child abuse and child endangerment.

Police were called to Loma Linda University Medical Center around 8 a.m. that day after a 3-year-old girl was brought in with numerous aerosol burns to her entire body, Fontana police said.

“The investigation revealed that the burns were not self-inflicted and both foster parents who reside on the 7500 Block of West Heritage Parkway in Fontana were arrested,” spokewoman Martha Gizman-Hurtado said.

Once in custody, both suspects admitted to the crime and were booked at the West Valley Detention Center.

Robert Ismael, 35, is being held on $100,000 bail and was scheduled to appear in court on Friday.

Emily Ismael, 29, was free on an undisclosed bond.

The victim and two other foster children were removed from the home and taken into custody by CFS.
