17-month-old baby boy hospitalized following extreme abuse by his mother's boyfriend!
A 17-month-old boy was hospitalized Friday morning following abuse that Apopka police said came at the hands of his mother's boyfriend.
Investigators said 24-year-old Darlanne Toussaint was babysitting the child at the Willow Lake apartments off SR-436, Thursday. Police said when the baby started crying, Toussaint confessed to beating the boy and using a hair dryer on several parts of his body for 10 to 30 minutes.
His next door neighbor was shocked to hear the news.
"I can't believe he would do something like that. He seemed like a real nice guy. I can't believe he would take it that far," said Jeff Nathe, the suspect's neighbor.
Toussaint was in the Orange County jail, Friday morning. He is facing attempted murder charges.
