A man deluged a 7-month-old infant girl’s eyes with bleach after beating up his girlfriend in a scary domestic violence case. The suspect assaulted the woman in the violent incident between the two.
Jehral Joseph, the 34-year-old accused, charged with provoked assault and abuse to an infant. The charges are in connection with a violent incident that happened in January 2019 in Houston, Texas.
Joseph reportedly bashed his girlfriend as he slammed her into a wall, as per authorities. No further statements released regarding the condition of the children.
The Accused Punched The Woman
According to the reports, Joseph battered his girlfriend. When she tried to ask for help, he broke her cell phone and punched her in the stomach. The victim somehow managed to gather her children together as she planned to escape from the abuser.
As the woman tried to get away from the man, Joseph drained a bottle of bleach on her, reports claimed.
The chemical got into the victim’s eyes and nose as she suffered a problem in breathing because of the fumes. The woman told the cops that the man cursed her and her kids as he violently attacked them.
