SPOTSYLVANIA, Va. (WTVR) -- A North Carolina man was beaten by a family member and arrested by deputies after he was found in a bedroom with two toddlers while staying with a relative, according to the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office.
Deputies responded to a disturbance at a residence during the early morning hours of Dec. 29.
Deputies say they arrived to a “chaotic” scene and an older male, later identified as 60-year-old Mark Stanley, with severe injuries to his face.
Deputies say a family member checked on his two toddlers, ages 2 and 3, to find Stanley in the room with the children naked from the waist down.
“When the family member questioned what he was doing in the room, Mr. Stanley pushed the family member out of the room, then locking the door,” a sheriff’s office spokesperson said. “The family member forced entry into the room and began beating Mr. Stanley.”
Deputies say they arrived at the residence and encountered a family member displaying a handgun approaching Stanley.
Stanley was transported to a hospital for his injuries and later transported to jail.
Stanley has been charged with two counts of indecent liberties and one count of domestic assault.
No charges were brought against the family member.
