Man Arrested For Throwing Boy Into Dryer, Forcing Him To Eat Cat Feces
A West Virginia man was taken into police custody after authorities say he abused his girlfriend's son extensively, duct taping him and throwing him in to a clothes dryer before later forcing him to eat a cat feces sandwich.
22-year-old Joseph Edward Jones faces child abuse charges stemming from 2008 when a boy, now 6, says he was mistreated by his mother's live-in boyfriend.
The boy told police that the man abused him a number of times over the past three years by pouring ice water on him and biting him on the nose and face.
In one incident, the child say his hands and feet were duct taped before the man put him into a dryer.
The boy's mother also told authorities that he made her son eat a sandwich with cat feces inside it but failed to report the incident at the time.
When asked why he didn't report the abuse sooner, the 6-year-old told police that he was scared because Jones threatened to harm the woman if he did not keep quiet.
After his arrest Jones admitted to slamming the child against the wall several times but denied ever biting him despite obvious bite marks on his face.
He was charged with child abuse causing injury and was released from jail after posting $30,000 bond.
