It was found that a two-year-old adopted child was abused and the adopted child became unconscious. This month, the adopted child was violently assaulted several times.
Today (10th), the Gyeonggi Southern Police Agency Women and Youth Investigation Unit filed an arrest warrant for A, a man in his 30s, on suspicion of serious injury under the Act on Special Cases concerning the Punishment of Child Abuse Crimes.
Mr. A is accused of losing consciousness by beating Ms. B (2, female) adopted on the morning of the 8th.
Ms. B was taken unconsciously to a hospital near Mr. A's home, Hwaseong-si, Gyeonggi-do, at around 6 pm on the same day, and was transferred to Gil Hospital, Incheon.
During this process, medical staff reported suspected abuse to the police when bruises were found on the face and other parts of the body of Ms.
The police found that Miss B was abused and fell into a state of unconsciousness, and arrested A, who brought Miss B to the hospital, in an emergency.
Mr. A admitted to the abuse at the police.
He said, "(8th) I kept crying and hitting a few hands with my hand. After that, the child fell asleep, but after a few hours, I couldn't wake up so I took him to the hospital.
He added, "Before the 8th, I hit my child at home on May 4th and 6th, and when I hit it once, I hit 4-5 generations."
It was investigated that Mr. A also hit his face and head with a wooden shoehorn along with his hand.
The police are investigating the possibility that Mr. A and Mrs. A adopted Ms. B in August of last year, leaving the possibility of abuse before May.
The medical staff at Gil Hospital also found bruise marks on Yang B's hips, chest, and inner thighs at different times of injury.
