    IN - 3-Year-Old Scalped By Mom’s Boyfriend

    Police: Man arrested for ‘scalping’ 3-year-old toddler

    Millburn, Indiana -
    An Indiana man was taken into custody after police say a 3-year-old girl suffered “scalping” injuries to her head.

    Andrew Milburn was charged with battery resulting in serious bodily injury to a person less than 14 years of age. Police say Milburn is the boyfriend of the toddler’s mother.

    According to the Howard County Sheriff’s Department, the 3-year-old girl was taken to a hospital on February 24 after her mother noticed swelling to the side of her head.

    The girl’s mother said she first noticed the swelling around 9 p.m. the night before, soon after Milburn brought the girl home from visiting his parent’s house, sheriff officials

    said in a news release.

    The girl’s mother asked Milburn what happened, to which Milburn responded “she must have fallen from a chair” at his parent’s home, the news release states.

    Doctors said the girl’s injuries were not consistent with a fall and described it as a “scalping injury.”

    “Scalping is when the scalp is forcibly removed from the skull causing internal bleeding. The blood settles around the skull causing extensive bruising and swelling,” the

    sheriff’s department said.

    What a monster and I doubt this was the first time he hurt her. Maybe the first time the injuries were serious enough for mom to notice.

    When I first read "scalping injury" I envisioned a knife to her head (like in cowboys and Indians) but I see that's not the case. But I just bet he thought he could pull this baby's hair and nobody would notice. Poor baby.
