MOORHEAD, MN – Police have accused a man of abusing his 2-month-old daughter, including choking her and rubbing hot sauce in her eyes.

Police began investigating after the child’s mother brought the girl to the hospital with dark bruises over both eyes and her shoulder, as well as red marks on her back.

The woman told police that the girl had been in the care of her father, 31-year-old Shawn Foltz, and that he claimed the injuries came from her 3-year-old brother hitting her with a toy gun.

But when interviewed by police, Foltz eventually admitted that he was the one responsible for his daughter’s injuries after becoming frustrated with her crying.

The abuse reportedly occurred from April until the end of May, and included Foltz rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in her eyes, blocking her airway until she turned blue, snapping her in the face with a towel, spraying her with hot water and throwing fireworks in her face.

Foltz also told police that he would sit at work and daydream about other ways to abuse his daughter. He was subsequently arrested and charged with neglect of a child, malicious punishment of a child and two counts of third-degree assault.

Foltz is being held in the Clay County Jail on a $100,000 bail.
