Joshua Tabor of Yelm, Washington … Father of the Year, NOT!!! Charged with Assaulting 4 Year Old Daughter
ABC’s, ABUSE, BEATING AND CHILD ENDANGERMENT …
Make no mistake that 27 year old Joshua Tabor of Yelm, Washington will never be nominated for the Father of the Year Award. Tabor is being charged with assault for allegedly beat his 4 year old daughter before holding her head under water Sunday night in the family’s kitchen sink.
Why did he do this to his daughter? Because the 4 year old refused to recite her ABC’s. Good grief.
Tabor reportedly told a police officer that he and his girlfriend “held her down on the counter and submerged her head into the water three or four times until the water came around her forehead and jawline,” according to the newspaper.
The suspect said he punished the girl for “refusing to say her letters.”
Tabor, a soldier at the Lewis-McChord base in Tacoma, Wash., has been charged with second-degree assault of a child and is set to appear in court Feb. 16.
According to court records as reported at The News Tribune:
Yelm police responded to a disturbance Sunday night after Tabor’s girlfriend reported that Tabor, a Joint Base Lewis-McChord soldier, “was irate, intoxicated and walking around the neighborhood with his Kevlar helmet threatening to break windows.”
Tabor’s girlfriend told Yelm police that Tabor beats his 4-year-old daughter and that the child’s back was covered in bruises. The girlfriend reported that the 4-year-old had locked herself in a closet because she was afraid of her father.
The girlfriend also reported that when the child wets herself, Tabor “makes her sit in the urine-soaked clothes” until he gives her permission to change.
The girl spoke to a Yelm officer, and he observed that she “had severe bruising on her entire back,” along with scratch marks and bruising on her neck, throat, chin, arms, legs and buttocks.
She “was asked how she got the bruises and she replied ‘Daddy did it.’” (snip)
