Holiday man accused of breaking toddler's arm

NEW PORT RICHEY — A Holiday man was arrested Tuesday after, police say, a toddler left in his care was found with bruises and a broken arm.

Joseph Alec Kazmar, 34, brought the 15-month-old boy to his mother at 6:30 Tuesday morning, with bruising on the toddler's underarms, back and head, a New Port Richey Police report states. Kazmar said the boy had fallen out of his playpen and that Kazmar found the child on the floor with his right arm under him.

They took the boy to Northbay Hospital where a physician found a thumb mark on the boy's chest and a fracture to his arm that suggested it had been something other than a fall, the report states.

Kazmar, of 4203 Oakfield Ave., Holiday, was arrested on a charge of aggravated child abuse with great harm. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Wednesday in lieu of $10,000 bail.
