Police are searching for a father who, they said, abused his daughter after receiving a negative discipline report at school.

Police responded to the Wylds Road apartment Monday afternoon where they found the 6-year-old with redness and swelling to the face, neck, head and back.

Her father, 23-year-old George Pacheco, fled the home prior to police arrival. He faces charges of cruelty to children in the first degree.

Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Richmond County Sheriff’s Office at (706) 821-1080.

Okay, Which Is It

The original story never said this piece of trash was the father. It just referenced him as "boyfriend".... He's still a piece of excrement. OR, is this ANOTHER child that has been beaten ...?

I'll start the firestorm here and take the heat for it. People for the most part do not understand what spanking is suppose to be.. I have worked in the public for 30 years and people yank their children by their arms, slap them, yell at them, threaten them and I have seen children punched and hit with large sticks. I was hit with what ever was available, a shoe, a switch, a special paddle my mom had made with holes in it, belt that left bruises for days, slapped in the face, verbally and emotionally abused. My parents did this because they didn't know how to control their emotions and handle discipline. I turned out okay, but I have three siblings that are not as well as me. I got out as fast as I could.
I have a grown child that has never been hit. It was a choice my husband and I made. She is a honor student, has received many accomolades and has a bright future. She is polite, kind and well behaved.
Keep you hands to yourself and talk to your children, guide them, love them, be patient with them and trust them. We are trying to make it through this together.
