Police in Florida got a call to check on a battered child at the Dolphin Mall in Orlando. When they arrived, they spoke to the boy’s parents. They soon got to the bottom of the situation, and the parents have been arrested.
The young boy, whose name has not been released, was on the sidewalk with his mother and father when police arrived. The police approached the boy’s father, Mariano Pinar, 28, to ask him why the boy looked bloodied and shaken. There were welts across the boy’s back.
As the police interviewed the boy’s father, they observed that the boy was ‘nervous, shaking, crying and afraid to speak’ to authorities. Pinar also looked nervous and seemed evasive when police asked him questions.
Eventually, the father broke down and confessed. He beat his son with a belt before arriving at the shopping center.
