A Chester County man who admitted he got so frustrated with his colicky newborn Saturday night that he intentionally burned her with scalding water has been charged with aggravated assault and related offenses.
Jorge Colon, 20, of Oxford, was bathing his 1-month-old daughter Kiara in the kitchen sink about 10 p.m. when she began crying, according to District Attorney Thomas P. Hogan's office.
Colon told police that he became frustrated and turned the water to its hottest, removing Kiara after she began screaming, Hogan said. Colon put her in a towel, but Colon and the baby's mother rushed the baby to Jennersville Regional Hospital after her skin began peeling off, Hogan said.
