Child abuse in Great Mills alleged
Sean Paul Monroe McMillion, 36, of Great Mills has been charged after reportedly striking two children with a belt, “leaving visible signs of injuries.”
According to court documents, the victims had “been instructed to do various chores” and find a pair of shoes for another sibling on Sept. 25. When the two children had stopped assisting, McMillion allegedly “began to strike them with a belt.” One victim had an injury to her upper right arm “consistent with being struck by a belt … buckle,” charging papers state.
The father told deputies he struck “the victims with his right hand on the buttocks above their clothing as he held the belt for show in his left hand.” McMillion said he didn’t know how the victim sustained the injury to her arm.
Charging documents state McMillion has been investigated for a similar matter in June 2016. McMillion has been charged with two counts of child abuse and two counts of assault, both second degree.
