According to reports, the whipping left the child with visible and painful marks about the body.
The mother, said to be a national of Grenada, was reportedly charged and granted station bail in the sum of $2000.
She is scheduled to appear in court on June 25, 2021.
Only recently a four-year-old boy on Virgin Gorda suffered a broken leg after he was allegedly beaten by his stepfather.
It is unclear if charges have been laid in this matter.
