Lawrence Man Beat 10 Week Old With Tablet In Pillow Case
Seriously? Someone could actually do this to a baby? A Lawrence man is facing horrific allegations of child abuse for allegedly beating his girlfriend’s 10-week-old son with a computer tablet.
According to WBZ-TV, Enrique Santiago, 20, was arrested in Lawrence, Mass. Police say Santiago was watching the boy on December 26 in Nashua, New Hampshire while the boy’s mother was at a work. At some point during the day, Santiago is accused of putting a tablet computer inside a pillow-case and swinging the pillow case at the boy’s face, intentionally striking him.
The boy’s mother brought him to the hospital. He was suffering bleeding on the brain, brain swelling, retinal bleeding, fractured ribs, as well as leg and arm fractures. He is currently in critical but stable condition.
The baby boy is expected to survive, but may have suffered permanent disabilities as a result of the attack.
