Smith County Man Arrested for Assaulting a 2-Year-Old
A toddler is recovering in a Dallas hospital after she was allegedly severely beaten by her mother’s boyfriend.
Authorities have arrested 28-year-old Joshua Robert Williams after the little girl was found unresponsive by her mother last week.
Investigators determined the child’s injuries were not consistent to a fall as first reported and arrested Williams Monday.
The toddler had to undergo emergency surgery to repair a damaged kidney. She is expected to recover and will remain hospitalized for several more days.
Williams is jailed on bonds totaling $250,000.
