Richmond Man Charged with Abuse after Allegedly Beating One-Year-Old


A Richmond man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly beat a one year old. According to officers, 26 year old Timothy Winkler left the child with significant bruising that covered the child’s head and face, and sent the baby to the hospital. The citation details that the bruising was intentional, and was considered by doctors to be a serious injury. The abuse was determined to be from a specific time period in November, when Winkler was responsible for the child. Winkler had allegedly told police that the child sustained the injuries from falling into a doorframe. Winkler was arrested and taken to the detention center and charged with first degree criminal abuse of a child younger than 12.
