Father ‘burns his son’s face with an iron over missing $1 bill’

An Illinois man has been arrested following claims he burned his 11-year-old son with an iron while trying to make the boy confess to stealing a dollar from him.

Josue Manrique, 35, from Joliet, has been charged with aggravated domestic battery and aggravated battery of a child.

According to the authorities, the abuse took place when Manrique returned home ‘on edge’ at 3am last Sunday after a night of drinking.

Police Commander Brian Benton said: ‘He’d been watching a boxing match where his fighter had lost and was having transmission problems with his car on the way home.

‘When he came home, he noticed a dollar missing from his dresser and that apparently set him off.’

Manrique is alleged to have struck his son with a leather belt to wake him up, then hit him several times.

He reportedly burned the boy’s arm and hand with an iron while the child continued to deny taking the dollar.
