- The mother of the five-year-old boy reportedly did not receive him medical attention
- That would have happened between July 1 and August 28 of this year
- Court documents shed more light on the allegations against the mother
- Boy is said to have suffered ‘significant and persistent physical damage and abuse’
- Her boyfriend, 20, is accused of hitting the boy with a stick or wooden stake
- Cabramatta’s mother was charged with injuring the boy on Wednesday
It’s the most basic of parental duties, but the mother of a five-year-old in Sydney who was reportedly beaten ‘within an inch of his life’ is charged with horrific treason.
Daily Mail Australia can only reveal grim details of the case against a 31-year-old Cabramatta mother, who was found at home with her injured son late last month.
Court documents show that the mother, who cannot be named, is accused of not having received ‘appropriate medical care’ for her son.
That’s after he allegedly suffered “ significant and sustained physical damage and abuse ” for a period of up to two months.
The details of how police allege the mother abandoned the boy could be revealed when she was hit on Wednesday with a new charge of deliberately injuring the boy.
Her boyfriend, 20, has been charged with the same crime, with police claiming in court that he hit the child with a stick or wooden stake.
The injured boy is pictured with his parents on his second birthday. The mother and father have long been estranged from each other
A photo, uploaded years ago, according to a source, was leaked from the woman’s social media pages. It prompted a friend to ask ‘what happened to his face?’

As the mother was denied bail in court on Wednesday for serving the evidence, it may be revealed that questions have previously been raised about the boy.
A photo leaked to Daily Mail Australia from the woman’s now-deleted social media pages shows the boy with various scratches or scabs on his head two years ago.
The photo prompted a friend to ask in Vietnamese ‘what happened to his face’, but the mother did not respond publicly.
There is no suggestion that the brands were necessarily caused by abuse, neglect or misconduct.
The boy was found in a critical condition on Friday 28 August at around 9:50 PM while renting red bricks from his mother.
He was taken to hospital where he received a living allowance.
It took five days for the boy to wake up at Westmead Children’s Hospital, with loved ones crowing that it was a ‘miracle’ that he was alive.
‘I couldn’t imagine what (the father) would be like if he lost him, he means the absolute world to him,’ a source said.
Piles of water bottles, Red Bull, and coconut drink were lined up in the mother’s yard

Police confirmed on Wednesday that the boy is still under doctor’s care some 12 days after he was found.
But he is in a stable condition, with the boy’s father constantly by his side.
The boy’s father and mother have been estranged for a while, and both have moved on with new partners for the past two years.
“I miss and love you so much,” the father wrote a photo of his son on Facebook in 2018, after his relationship with the mother was nasty.
Meanwhile, the boy’s mother presented herself to friends as a loving parent who showered her son with toys.
She described the child as her ‘prince’ on Facebook, saying she hoped he grew up to be ‘obedient and smart’.
“You are my whole life,” she said.
The mother did not apply for bail at the local Liverpool court on Wednesday and it was formally refused.
She will return to court in October. Her boyfriend has also been denied bail.
