RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — An eastern Indiana man faces battery and neglect charges alleging that he bit the face of a 2-year-old boy who had been left in his care.
Twenty-three-year-old Donald Allen Worley was arrested Tuesday on battery and neglect of a dependent charges alleging serious bodily injury. He remained jailed Thursday on a $25,000 bond.
Court documents say the Richmond man told police he bit the boy after the child bit him when he stuck his fingers in the youngster’s mouth to prevent him from choking on candy.
Worley says he bit the child’s face hard enough to break the skin and leave marks.
The Palladium-Item reports (http://pinews.co/1H0RTM0 ) court documents say a detective could still see bruising and distinct teeth markings on the boy’s right cheek about a week after the incident.
