2 charged after toddler beaten, sexually assaulted

TARBORO, N.C. (AP) – Authorities have charged two people after they say a 2-year-old child was beaten and sexually assaulted at a babysitter’s house in Tarboro.

The Edgecombe County Sheriff’s Office said 41-year-old Cirilo Torido-Bastida of Macclesfield faces two counts of forcible sex offense and one count of assault inflicting serious bodily injury. He is jailed under an $855,000 secured bond.

The sheriff’s office also said 20-year-old Chelsey Elane Speight of Tarboro is charged with accessory after the fact on all three counts and is jailed under a $355,000 secured bond.

A statement from the sheriff’s office said Speight was babysitting the toddler and her sister for a friend on Nov. 3. When the mother returned, the 2-year-old had been beaten. The other child was unharmed.

The toddler is recovering at her grandmother’s house.
