MOORHEAD, MN (RNN) – A 31-year-old father has been charged with rubbing hot sauce and red pepper in his 2-month-old daughter’s eyes and keeping her from breathing until she turned blue, according to the Associated Press.
He is charged with neglect of a child, malicious punishment of a child, and two counts of third-degree assault, which are all felonies.
Shawn Foltz confessed to investigators that while he was at work he would think of ways to harm the child, radio station KFGO reported.
Authorities said he snapped her with a towel, burned her by spraying hot water in her face and threw fireworks at her.
He allegedly accused the victim’s 3-year-old brother of causing the injuries by hitting her with a toy gun.
Foltz’s attorney could not be reached on Sunday, AP reported.
