IN - Father threatens to burn sons, Peru
PERU, Ind. — A man sprayed lighter fluid on his teenage sons and threatened to set them on fire, police said.Miami County Sheriff deputies charged David Allen Parsons, 36, with felony battery while armed with a deadly weapon, neglect of a dependent and criminal recklessness while armed with a deadly weapon.
Detective Mike Rogers said the dispute started Saturday when Parsons arrived home after a night of drinking and found himself locked out of the house.
He became upset and hit his 17-year-old son in the face and kicked him in the chest repeatedly, then sprayed lighter fluid on the boy and his 18-year-old brother and their bedding, Parsons said.
The boys told deputies their father was striking a cigarette lighter and threatening to set them on fire.
One of the victims ran next door and asked a neighbor to call police
I wonder how long he has been abusing them like this. POS
