Man Charged After Child Hit In Face With Bleach

A man is facing a charge after lawmen say he threw bleach which splashed a child in the face.

The Beaufort County Sheriff's Office reports they went to a home at Trails End South in Washington in November after a woman called screaming for help.

They say deputies arriving to the scene found a five-year-old child had been spashed in the face with bleach during a domestic dispute.

An investigation led to the December 15th arrest of 23-year-old Antonio Winters of Highway 171 North in Washington. He was charged with one count of malicious throwing of corrosive acid or Alkali and locked up under a $50,000 secured bond.

The child was treated at the hospital and released.

    I love the hard tough guy look he is showing in the photo. No need for it though. Who wouldn't be scared of a guy brave enough to hurt a five year old.

    I think he "probably" aiming at the woman. But neverthless, he look really mean and abusive. I have no love for abusive men. Though I'm totally sure that this is just a sad "misunderstanding."
