Man accused of molesting children beaten by father
SPOTSYLVANIA COURTHOUSE, VA (AP) — Police in Virginia say they may have saved the life of a man who was accused of molesting two small children and then attacked by the children’s father.
Authorities in Spotsylvania County told The Free Lance-Star on Thursday that the father was not charged. But the other man was arrested after he was rescued from a beating.
Mark Anthony Stanley, of Burlington, North Carolina, faces two counts of taking indecent liberties with a child and assault.
Police said deputies rescued Stanley from further injury after the father obtained a weapon.
