Houston, Texas - A low-life has been arrested after being seen on a police camera beating a 7-year-old.
Police in Houston set up cameras at various spots where illegal dumpers frequently litter. On Thursday, a Harris County Deputy was watching the cameras when he saw something much more serious than illegal dumping. The deputy saw a man, later identified as Kordarell Williams, 27, beating his girlfriend's 7-year-old child.
Williams could be seen on camera hitting the child a total of 62 times over the course of five minutes.
For those of you with the stomach to watch, we've included a small excerpt of the beating below:
"This guy ravaged this kid, he was hit 62 times, we counted," Constable Alan Rosen said in a news release. "He was bent over the hood of a car and hit with a belt. It's just an extremely sad situation."
Three hours after the beating, law enforcement hunted down Kordarell Williams and arrested him. Williams is being charged with causing injury to a child.
"I'm proud and relieved that quick action by our deputies led to the arrest and to medical care for the child, and that justice will be done," Constable Alan Rosen said . "As a law enforcement leader, a parent and a life-long member of this community, I'm deeply concerned and upset by such an incident."
Thanks to the Houston-area law enforcement officers, the child was able to receive medical care and the suspect was captured.
The mother of the child still has custody of the child and her other children. There's no indication that she was aware of the beating prior to being told my law enforcement.
