All suspects are presumed innocent until determined guilty in court.

Hot Springs Police Officer Scott accompanied DHS Worker Jensen to a residence in the 500 block of Lakeland Drive earlier this month in reference to a report of alleged child abuse.

They arrived and made contact with the father named in the complaint.  Remy Martin Dorn, 29 of Hot Springs, was informed that his 2 daughters, ages 7 and 5 were being removed from the residence by DHS due to signs of severe physical abuse.

The 7 year old allegedly had severe, visible bruising on her face, forehead, eyes, arms, legs, back and buttocks along with several burn marks along her arms and hands.

When asked about the bruising on the 7 year old’s face, Mr. Dorn allegedly stated “I did that”.  Mr. Dorn allegedly explained that the daughter had “cursed at him” so, he “hit her in the face” and made a motion with his hand.

When asked about the burn marks, on both of his daughter’s arms and hands, the report states that he stated that he was not aware of any burns on them.  The report notes that both daughters had identical burn marks on the arms and hands.

Mr. Dorn turned himself into the Hot Springs Police Department a few days after the DHS visit.  He was arrested and charged with Felony Domestic Battery 2nd Degree with a no bond hold placed.
