A 3-year-old boy was made to “kiss the wall” and stand on a bucket in case he peed. This after Marc Charfauros allegedly whipped him with a belt and tossed him across the room like a “rag doll,” according to a complaint filed in the Superior Court of Guam.
Charfauros began dating the child’s mother three months ago. The boy’s mom said this was not the first time he abused her son.
She said Charfauros had an angry demeanor about him and finds any excuse to ‘discipline’ her son.
She stated she decided to call the police but feared Charfauros would become angry if she did, so she pretended to play a game on her phone but instead was messaging a friend for help and to call the police.
Police noted the little boy had discoloration and injuries to his face and red raised welts.
Earlier on the evening of September 18, the 3-year-old didn’t want to sleep so Charfauros used a belt to hit him.
Court documents further state that the boy’s mother was not in the room but heard the sound of multiple strikes and her son’s crying growing louder.
“She attempted to stop Charfauros but pushed her away yanked the minor by the arm and propelled him through the air like a rag doll until he hit the floor,” states the complaint.
The mother blocked several strikes with her arm trying to protect her son.
Other instances of abuse are detailed in the complaint. The boy’s 10-year-old sister witnessed Charfauros make the toddler eat hot pepper sauce, slap the child, and spank his legs.
Charfauros was charged with family violence and child abuse both as a misdemeanor.
He was booked and confined.
