Man Allegedly Whips Baby 42 Times Caught on Camera
The Columbus Division of Police say an arrest has been made after a man was seen on video striking a 3-year-old child several times.
Police say the suspect, identified as the 27-year-old father, Robert Slocum, was caught on camera at an IGA supermarket on September 24.
They add that the child was left alone in the SUV when the suspect went grocery shopping with a woman and three other kids.
“People call it discipline, it’s good old-fashioned assaults,” said Detective Andre Edwards from the Columbus Police Department. “[He uses] some type of a cord and it looks like it’s to bare skin. I can almost assure you [there are] welts all over this child. The force that was used, the child looks like no older than two or three, it’s almost unacceptable. I don’t know what the kid could have done. It’s excessive.”
Columbus police said within minutes of posting the video to social media, people called in identifying the man and woman in the video.
“Right now, my main concern is the children – checking the well-being of the children,” Edwards said.
Slocum was charged with domestic violence, assault and endangering children.
