A Laurens man was arrested for an alleged assault as he watched a PIT BULL maul his child.
Authorities identified the suspect as Antwain John Henderson, 38, of 603 Hunters Court, Laurens, charged with unlawful conduct toward a child. A report said based on an Aug. 20 investigation, Henderson is accused of putting his minor child at risk by “encouraging and allowing” A PIT BULL AND LABRADOR MIX dog to bite the child’s arm and upper body.
Henderson made a cellphone video of the attack, a report said.
Henderson did not try to help the child, authorities said, and he stood by as the child screamed in pain as a result of the attack.
A magistrate set bond for Henderson at $20,000.
