24 year old Immokalee man arrested for beating child

Manuel Hernandez-Jimenez, 24, was arrested for whipping a child with a cord.

The arrest report shows detectives observed lash marks and a small bump on the top of the child’s head and a large one on the back of her head. Hernandez-Jimenez’s landlord reported hearing Hernandez-Jimenez hitting the girl.

CCSO said, based on the evidence, that Hernandez-Jimenez punished the child for wetting her pants and may have caused serious injuries to her skull.

Hernandez-Jimenez told deputies he and the child came to the United States six months ago from Guatemala. He said the mother could not come with them because he did not have enough money to pay for the illegal travel.

Hernandez-Jimenez is currently being held in the Collier County jail on a $100,000 bond.
