Ralph Hishaw, 30 year old male, has been arrested after live streaming himself abusing, both verbally and physically, a 6-year old boy on Facebook Live. Hishaw was arrested on Monday for his transgressions against the young boy.
In the Facebook live video, Hishaw can be seen yelling terrible things at the young boy as well as taunting him and slapping him.
Police watched the video and noted that no one in their right mind would think that the way Hishaw treated the young boy was normal.
Hishaw sank really low with his insults towards the boy in the video. He was not only mocking the child, but he went on to call him stupid throughout the 32-minute video.
The man also told the 6-year old boy that he would ‘beat his head into the ceiling’ while repeatedly slapping him. From the beating, the boy was found to have bruises on his back.
In addition to the verbal and physical abuse, the boy existed in “deplorable living conditions.” This assessment of the environment was made based on the lack of food as well as the high concentration of debris.
Hishaw is also accused of slapping the little boy, and threatening to beat his head into the ceiling, FOX23 reports. The boy was later found to have bruises on his back, according to FOX23. Investigators used Google Earth and information in other videos to locate Hishaw. The house in which the abuse took place had “deplorable living conditions” because of its lack of food and high concentration of debris, according to authorities. The drug PCP was also found, FOX23 reports. Tulsa County online records show Hishaw is being held in lieu of bond and no attorney is listed for him. When asked about the accusations, Hishaw brushed off a FOX23 reporter, complimenting her hair and turning away.
