Andrew Milburn of Indiana was arrested this week on charges of child abuse. He had apparently tried to scalp his girlfriend’s 3-year-old daughter.
On the night of the abuse, the mother had allowed Milburn, her boyfriend, to take her child to his parents house. The two came home late. When the mom went into the little girl’s room to tuck her in, she noticed something VILE on the side of the child’s head. She called police immediately, once the little girl explained what Milburn and his family did to her.
Apparently Milburn had struck the little girl several times in the head, which is the best the 3-year-old could describe. Doctors describe the injury as a “scalping” injury, as if Milburn had forcefully tried to remove the scalp from the skull.
Scalping is the process of forcibly removing the scalp from a person’s skull. It causes internal bleeding and results in bruising and swelling.
During the investigation, it was revealed that Milburn allegedly struck the girl several times on the head and pulled her hair. He was taken into custody on a charge of battery resulting in serious bodily injury to a person less than 14 years of age. He was held in lieu of $25,000 bail.
“When will females learn to not trust these bf’s and random guys around your kids?” one Mad World News reader commented on the site’s Facebook page. “You have a responsibility to your children first and foremost. Never leave them with any body. Trust is earned not granted. You don’t sacrifice your children for anyone. Tragic.”
“YES he definitely needs some serious punishment but I still can’t understand a MOTHER that would leave a child with a stranger and taking her to a party by himself that would be a red flag for me never never leave your child with people you don’t know !!!!!!” another wrote.
“These sacks of $#!+ who hurt, kill or worse to defenseless babies, children and animals are NEVER going to stop until their punishment fits the crime,” another added. “They need to slowly experience exactly what they put their victims thru and it needs to be broadcast and advertised as a deterrent to others out there. My opinion, my vote if anyone ever has the guts to actually put a stop to this evil.”
