Man Pours Bleach Into Nieces' Cereal, Faces 2nd Degree Assault
12 months ago
New York man arrested and charged with second degree assault.
With a brother like this who needs enemies.
The niece and nephew, ages 1 and 3, drank the milk Thursday morning and got sick, suffering vomiting and diarrhea. They were treated at a hospital and released.
Police arrested 20-year-old Aaron Hickman in the crime. Hickman was living with his brother but got into an argument Wednesday night and was told to leave. In a twisted act of apparent revenge, he attempted to kill his brother's children with the bleach.
On Friday, the young boys' mother, Shamara Hale spoke saying she couldn't believe what happened.
"This is the worst experience ever because my kids could have died," says Hale. "I would've had to plan two funerals."
He is charged with second degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Hickman was arraigned today in Syracuse City Court.
