Pembroke mother outraged after she says her sister-in-law left bruises on her 1-year-old daughter


In Pembroke, North Carolina, a woman reported that her brother’s girlfriend, Cheyenne Oxendine, allegedly physically abused her one-year-old daughter, leaving visible marks and bruises on the child’s buttocks.

Destiney Hammonds shared with The North Carolina Beat that she typically has a different babysitter for her children. However, on Tuesday, her babysitter had to attend to matters at their grandmother’s place. Hammonds said that she asked her sister-in-law to care for her children, which she agreed.

According to Hammonds, her sister-in-law, Cheyenne and Hammonds brother, resides together at their mother’s residence, which was conveniently located next door.

“I had to ask her to watch my kids, while I go to work,” Hammonds said.

Hammonds told The North Carolina Beat that she trusted Cheyenne Oxendine with the care of her 11-month-old son, her 1-year-old daughter who had allegedly been subjected to abuse, and another daughter who is 8 years old. She also mentioned that Cheyenne had supervised her children the previous day [Monday] as well.

“Monday, I noticed that she [1-year-old daughter] was crying a lot and really didn’t want me to put her down,”Hammonds said. “She wanted comfort.”

When Tuesday morning came, Hammonds said she had left her children under the care of Cheyenne while she went to work. Upon returning home, she noticed that her 1-year-old daughter was “fussy”. She said she took her children to McDonald’s for food, returned home, and later, when preparing them for bedtime, her husband observed that the 1-year-old had bruising on her buttocks before putting her in the tub.

“My husband was washing the babies while I’m cleaning up and when he goes to take off her diaper to put her in the tub, it was black and blue, Hammonds said. “He called me, looked at me, and said, ‘WHAT THE F*CK IS ON MY DAUGHTER’S A**?’

Hammonds said she asked her 8-year-old daughter if she saw Cheyenne or Cheyenne’s brother, Dakota, hit her 1-year-old daughter, to which her daughter replied that she didn’t see Cheyenne hit her sister, but heard it.

“She said, ‘Cheyenne be beating her and then she took her to the room, but I didn’t see it. I heard my sissy screaming and Cheyenne would not let anyone in the room,’ Hammonds said.

Hammonds said that her brother told her that his niece had fallen on a “rock pile”. Hammonds didn’t believe it and mentioned that the doctors at the medical facility where she took her daughter told her that the injury was not caused by falling on a rock pile.

“I took her to the hospital and the doctor told me ‘this isn’t from a rock pile’ and that it was results of a ‘hand beating'”, Hammonds said.

On that evening, Hammonds said that the Robeson County Sheriff’s Office visited her residence in response to her physical altercation with Cheyenne, whom she accused of harming her one-year-old daughter. Despite the incident, Cheyenne was not apprehended for the alleged abuse of the child.

“The sheriff’s department came that night I beat Cheyenne for beating my child,” Hammonds said. “They came but they didn’t report it as a child abuse, they reported it as domestic violence.”

Hammonds mentioned that on that evening, she was informed that a detective would be contacting her, and Cheyenne was expected to have been arrested but was not.

“Cheyenne was supposed to have been locked up that night, but it was ignored,” Hammonds said.

On Friday, The North Carolina Beat discovered that Cheyenne had rushed to the authorities and filed assault charges on Hammonds. But what’s truly appalling is that a 1-year-old baby reportedly bears bruises and marks on her backside, supposedly inflicted by Cheyenne herself, with witnesses present, yet she has not been charged.


  1. If Cheyenne was able to walk away from that and not need medical attention I say she didnt get her good enough.
    Is Cheyenne some kin to them other Oxidine’s out that way?

    • And the police didnt care about that either because they didnt arrest her and is probably why they didnt arrest Cheyenne. Maybe they felt like they were even but Cheyenne was able to walk away with no medical assistance so I say get her again.
