Robert Smith is his name, and popping kids in dryers is game. The 34-year old man was arrested in New Orleans and booked on one count of cruelty to a juvinile after he allegedly pushed the kid into a hot dryer as a punishment for not turning in documents to his school teacher.
The incident happened last October when school officials noticed the burn on the boys arm. He was questions and revealed a few wild and crazy details about how he suffered at the hands of Robert. Check out the full article below.
The boy told the school official that the 34-year-old man whipped him about his torso with a belt, kicked him in the chest, then shoved him into a hot dryer with some clothes that had been in there. The unidentified school official immediately contacted the state’s Department of Children and Family Services about the alleged accusations of abuse. Police were also notified.Source: News One
The child was again questioned by police child abuse detective Tyra Pruitt on Dec. 5. He told the officer the same information that he had provided to the school official. Pruitt documented in the warrant that the child’s circular burn marks were a perfect match to the air ventilation screen located inside the dryer.
Smith is currently in jail on a $50,000 bond.
Poor kid. How traumatizing....
