The Phoenix woman accused of shoving a vibrator into her 2-year-old son's anus has pleaded not guilty to charges in the case. The vibrator had to be surgically removed.

Rickesha Burns, 21, called police almost two weeks ago, reporting that her son was bleeding from his anus but said she didn't know exactly what happened.

She said she was at a park with her son that day, March 24, and while she was "looking at a text message for about 10 seconds," a boy she didn't know at the park did "something" to her son, according to court documents obtained by New Times.

"She said she does not know what he did but is sure he did something," a probable-cause statement says.

The boy was brought to Phoenix Children's Hospital, and doctors discovered that he had numerous bruises around his anus, a "hanger-type" bruise on his hip, and yet another bruise on his neck.

Doctors also found an object lodged in his rectum, which appears to be "a vibrator or some other sex toy."

Police interviewed Burns, who still claimed that a teenage boy at a park did it, even though she "believes it is her vibrator," and police found the boy's blood on her shirt, according to court documents.

A Phoenix police spokesman said there was zero evidence that the boy was assaulted at the park.

Burns told police that she "worked hard to get her son back and would not do anything like this to hurt her son."

Indeed, court records show that Burns was investigated for child abuse in 2011, but it doesn't appear that criminal charges were ever filed. State records don't show any criminal history for Burns, other than a couple of misdemeanor cases related to driving without the proper documentation.

Burns' son needed to have surgery to get the vibrator removed, according to court documents. Police said the injuries around the boy's anus appear to be caused by a hanger, or similar object, being used in an attempt to get the vibrator out.

At her arraignment today, Burns pleaded not guilty to the charges against her, including sexual conduct with a minor and child abuse. A judge had previously ordered that Burns be held without bond.

Her next court date is scheduled for May 23.

 There is a special place in hell for her; reading her responses sounds as if she is mentally retarded; how could the state give this child back to his birth monster; she obviously needs a mental evaluation and treatment plus she should lose custody permanently and the courts should order her to have a tubal ligation and to register as a sex offender and never to be allowed around any children for the rest of her natural life! I am shocked and appalled at her actions and behavior a vibrator is large no matter how small it is for a woman and to violate her child in this manner and to have it surgically removed is the most cruel and unthinkable act. I hope she is never ever ever allowed to see that poor little boy again. I wonder where the father is and hope he can have custody. and for her to say she was trying to get the child off is so disgusting!!!!!! She should be embarrassed and ashamed of herself. I wish I could be in the courtroom when she goes to trial. This story needs to go viral and gain as much publicity as possible; smdh!!!! There are no words in the English language to describe this heinous and malicious act. This poor baby will be scarred for life both mentally and physically and I pray he is placed for adoption and not to be given to anyone in her family bc they would only allow his monster to see him. Prayers in abundance for this child and his family and I am going to pray for the monster as well bc only God can help her. I could go on and on but I digress; this is soooo wrong. The world is coming to an end and her actions prove that the devil is real; i hope she knows that God does not tolerate hurting children and he protects both babies and fools so you can say the baby and the monster will be ok. I am so pissed off right now at this "woman" my mere words alone cannot explain the depth of my anger I have towards her. Also I know women (and men) in jail/prison do not tolerate or condone abuse of child and they will beat your a$$ if they find out youre in jail for hurting a child. They probably have her in solitary confinement but I hope not, she deserves every hit/lick/blow/beating they can give her including the guards; i can go on and on but i must stop. Goodnight!!!!

Blame, blame, blame.... Good lord, REALLY? Did she just really try this? " A white guy ran up to my 2 year old son at the park, and started to shove a dildo up his ass, then he took out his coat hanger and tried to remove it" All in a matter of a few seconds??????

 NO WHITE PERSON WOULD GET AWAY WITH THAT TALK LET ALONE EVEN BRING THAT UP!!! IF a white ever tried this the Naccp would be all over that and never stop, SO WOULD THE NATIONAL MEDIA

has anyone thought of the other VERY LIKELY point of view here? first off i must start with saying most women who sexually offend children, admit it with no remorse simply because they can say that theres some hormonal reason blah blah blah (and i am a woman and i do believe this). im also a mother to 2 boys, ages 6 and 3. my 6 year old stuck a plastic easter egg in his bum when he was around 3 maybe, i took him to the hospital, and they explained that boys in the potty training stage that have never been sexually abused or anything sometimes have strange attachments to their poo like they believe it shouldnt be "falling out of them into the potty" and they sometimes have fear their weewee will fall off. so they will try to "plug" their bum, and some kids are just curios, this honestly could be a case where the child put it in himself, and the mother tried to get it out on her own because of fear because of what the object was and where it was, trust me i felt like i was going to be put in jail, until the doctor explained everything to me, but maybe this is what happened?

Strong case for free birth control &/or abortion.  A child is better off not being born to someone who is incapable of parenting.  CPS is stuck - it's all about reunification - & children are being hurt as a result.

That piece of trash should have a baseball bat shoved up her a--. How could anyone do something so horrible to a innocent child? She should be locked away for the rest of her miserable life, That animal can not be rehabilitated so she should be tortured everyday for the rest of her life.

TH IS A  VERY SICK PERSON TO EVEN CONSIDER HARMING HER OWN CHILD IN THIS FORM OF ABUSE AND WHO DO WE BLAME??????????? THE ONES THAT ALLOWED HER TO "QUOTE ON  QUOTE" BE A MOTHER AFTER THE FIRST INCIDENT. OUR SOCIETY DON'T HAVE THE CHILDS INTEREST BEST AT HEART, THEY JUST SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR THINGS SUCH AS THIS TO HAPPEN TO MAKE THE "MOTHER" LOOK LIKE THE VILIM" WHEN IN REALITY SOCIETY PLAYS THE BIGGEST PART IN THE ABUSE OF THIS CHILD WHO WILL SUFFER THE REST OF HIS LIFE AND EVERYONE ELSE WILL GO ON WITH THEIR LIVES AND NEVER THINK OF HIM AGAIN. I PRAY FOR THIS, MOTHER AND THE CHILD, BECAUSE SHE IS SICK AND THE BABY IS SUFFERING...........MAY GOD BE WITH BOTH OF THEM!!!

my heart goes out to this little boy. i pray he doesn't have permanent physical and psychological damage due to his evil mother's brutality, and he is adopted into a loving home where he can have a normal childhood.

I understand the desire to publicly shame this allegedly terrible excuse for a human being, but I find it highly unethical to publish her name. By doing so, you've only exposed that little boy to further victimization and trauma in the future. Please remove this story from facebook and and from your homepage for the good of the child.

Blame backpage.com for what she did. She should be lynched.

All those injuries were inflicted on the child while she was texting? And he didn't let out a yelp? The teenager did it all in the span of ten seconds? Ain't nobody gonna believe any of that. One thing is certain. She's never getting that kid back. Ever. I have a theory of the crime. She pushed the vibrator up his behind (turned on, of course) to soothe him. Whaddya think, posters?

Sickening. I say cut out her genitals and then draw and quarter her ass.

Seriously?? Okay, so just forget about the fact that her child has been taken away before for PROVEN child abuse.  Then a bruise on his neck, and hip?  You crazy as hell if you think this woman did not do this! All the evidence is there.  How and why would a child put something that big and painful in there anus? And the bigger question is how in the hell did your 3 year old son put an easter egg in his behind???? I can't even do that! I would be screaming for my dear life!

@ellarogers55 Without facts please don't blame CPS. They have a legal duty to help reunite families, and whatever caused her to come under CPS jurisdiction probably did not telegraph this kind of outrageous behavior. And if CPS changed and tried to take more kids from their parents (1) they would have no place to put them and (2) people would be screaming about state invasion of the family, fascism, socialism, etc etc. I doubt anyone could have predicted this kind of outcome. But if CPS did drop the ball, consider that we consistently and dramatically underfund CPS, and offer working conditions that make it extremely difficult to hold on to the best case workers and investigators.

I pray for the child because no child should ever be hurt and this is a innocnet baby but I think you are wrong about the mom, she deserves to suffer everday for the rest of her miserable life, She knew exactly what she did and just didn't care.  And just so you know nobody made her look like a VILLAIN, she did that all by her stupid self.

@Jenny Ward This is a two-year old.  His name has not been publicized,, just the mothers.  Do you really think this will prose a problem for the child?

@eric.nelson745 I wouldn't be surprised if she does get the child back at some point.  Apparently the child had already been removed by CPS due to similar abuse, but some POS judge decided to give the baby back to the mother less than a week before this horrible crime occurred.  Sometimes I wonder how these judges sleep at night.

Exactly! Why in the hell would you put something in your child's rectum?  When has that ever been okay?

@don.dodondo @eric.nelson745 Let's hope the judge and CPS see this woman in a clearer light. She's seriously endangered the child twice now. Will the third time be a charm, I mean will she finally kill him if she gets him back?

@eric.nelson745 @don.dodondo oh please, she is never going to be out of jail much less allowed to parent that kid, And you cannot criticize the judge without even knowing what evidence he had to look at or what the law requires him to do.

If CPS keeps kids it has no place for them and people will start screaming about how the government is stealing children without justification. CPS and the juvenile courts are badly underfunded. We get what we pay for when each caseworker has nearly twice the caseload they should have and the very best eventually are defeated by the numbing nature of the work and the system. How about raising taxes to provide better services.

I have been a foster parent and an adoptive parent; my ex-daughter in law lost her toddler to CPS (not my son's child) two years ago. CPS gave her parenting classes, therapy for herself, and a host of other supportive help. IT MADE A DIFFERENCE, I've known her for 15 years and she has finally turned a corner in her life, started making smart decisions, and being a much better mom. Personally I think it was the therapy that finally helped, but who knows. The point is she has her child back, she stopped dating drug dealers and thugs and found another decent guy (like my son). She has gotten better enough that my son now allows his kids to spend weekends with her, which he would never do before. So there are a lot of success stories, and they don't get heard while something like this ...well of course this is gonna get heard. It's horrid....
