CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Two people are facing charges after a child reported their "excessive corporal punishment."
The incident report from Horry County Police indicates the child victim had reportedly been "spanked on numerous days" with a belt and a shoe by 29-year-old Coolidge Mike McDaniel and 27-year-old Amber Tyler.
The report further states that the child was forced to "bite on soap at times."
The child was reluctant to be in the presence of Tyler and McDaniel again, saying he feared more spankings for telling. An Horry County Police officer noted injuries on the child and requested an investigation by the Department of Social Services.
Tyler and McDaniel were both arrested on Sunday and charged with cruelty to children. Each were released from J. Reuben Long Detention Center a few hours later with a $1,000 bond.
