Conway man arrested after striking child with belt buckle

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) – Police responded to Econo Lodge after a man struck his child with a belt buckle Monday, according to a report from Conway Police Department.

The mother of the child said that 31-year-old Rasheen Terron Webb, of Conway, struck their son with a belt and then turned the belt around, striking him in the arm with the belt buckle.

Webb continued by slapping the child, causing his nose to bleed.

Webb then picked up the child by his shirt collar, which restricted his airflow, making the child feel that he was going to lose consciousness. He also threw the child to the ground, the report states.

The mother arrived and she got into an argument with Webb about the treatment of their son.

According to the report, the mother tried to call for help, but Webb cornered her in the bathroom, preventing her to leave.

The mother tried to get her cell phone from Webb, but he smashed it onto the ground.

The mother then told one of her children to run to the front desk and tell them to call 911 for help because the suspect had her trapped in the bathroom.

Webb was charged with: child abuse, kidnapping, and 2nd-degree domestic violence.
