St. Pete Man Arrested, Charged with Child Abuse

Police said the 4-year-old boy suffered a lacerated kidney after allegedly being struck by the suspect, 23-year-old David Conway.

A St. Petersburg man is in jail for allegedly hitting a 4-year-old boy, which resulted in the child having a lacerated kidney. 

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, the child's mother left the child in the care 23-year-old David Patrick Conway while she was at work.

When she returned the child told his mother that he had urinated blood. The child had flushed the toilet and the mother was unable to confirm what had happened. When the child urinated later on, he showed his mother that there was blood in the urine again, according to a news release. The mother snapped a photograph of the urine in the toilet and immediately transported the child for medical attention.

According to authorities, doctors determined that the child had a laceration to his kidney and said it not to be a medical condition, but trauma related.

Through their investigation, detectives were further able to determine that the injury was caused during the time that the victim was in Conway's care. The child told deputies that the suspect had caused his injury by striking him.

Detectives developed probable cause for the arrest of Conway. On Thursday, Nov. 15, detectives conducted surveillance on Conway and conducted a traffic stop at the intersection of Blindpass and Captiva Circle in St. Pete Beach and arrested the suspect without further incident.

Conway was transported to the Pinellas County Jail, where he is being held on no bond.

According to jail records, Conway has one previous arrest for possession of marijuana.

The problem here is that with his situation yes maybe it was trama related and maybe he did spank the child the same day. The trama could have been the prior day. People accused of child abuse are guilty until proven innocent and it is wrong. Thousands of innocent people get their familys torn apart from being falsely accused every year. This should not be on the news until a fair trial is done and he is proven guilty. http://www.beatcpsnow.com/gpage.html

People like Jerry S. are stupid loud mouths. Melissa is right...so many today accuse the arrested person of being guilty until proved innocent or guilty. This isn't what the justice system is all about. People like him only show how ignorant they are.
