Rosemont, IL — Here’s a horrific case of child abuse that’ll knock your ass right out of the holiday spirit. A 33-year-old man is in jail on $200,000 bond after being charged with submerging his 17-month-old stepson’s face in scalding water, causing second-degree burns. After doing a bit of heroin and getting into an argument with his wife, police say Santiago R. Minjarez got aggravated at his stepson’s crying after the boy’s mother left the house. He admitted to holding the kid upside down by his legs, one of them still in a cast from a previous injury, and placing his head in the hot water running from a bathtub faucet. Realizing that this was not working, he then held the boy’s head under 2 or 3 inches of water in the bottom of the bathtub. Realizing he just burned the crap out of the kid, Minjarez tried getting help for the boy by taking him on the CTA Blue Line which did not get him to a hospital, but rather the O’Hare International Airport. At that point he finally called his wife who picked him and her son up and rushed to the hospital. The infant suffered second-degree burns on his face and eyelids which caused his eyes to swell shut. He is recovering, but may require skin grafts to his face. Minjarez was arrested Wednesday after showing up at the hospital. He had been escorted out by security on Tuesday because he was upsetting his wife. He was charged with aggravated battery of a child. Minjarez is no stranger to jail, having served time for burglary, arson and of course, domestic battery.Tags: Child Abuse, Crime, Drugs, heroin, Illinois, scalding
