A Bermuda Run woman has been charged with child abuse after severe bruising was found on the child at school.

Khawla Trabelsi, 29, of North Field Drive, was charged last week by the Davie Sheriff’s Office with one count of felony child abuse, and was taken into custody in lieu of a $25,000 bond. She is scheduled for a first-appearance hearing Sept. 21 in Davie District Court.

Davie Sheriff’s Chief Deputy Brian Jacobs said that the school resource officer at Pinebrook Elementary School was shown the bruises on the child, and the investigation followed.

The child was interviewed at The Dragonfly House Children’s Advocacy Center.
