A man was arrested last week in Spotsylvania, Virginia, but not before being severely beaten after being found naked from the waist down in the bedroom of two children.
According to reports, 60-year-old Mark Stanley, of North Carolina, was found by the father of the children, naked from the waist down.
Investigators say the dad went to check on his children and found Stanley – who is supposedly a relative of the family – lurking.
It’s said Stanley panicked and pushed the father out of the bedroom before locking the door. The dad, however, managed to force his way back in and assaulted Stanley.
Spotsylvania Sheriff Department said in a Facebook post: “In the early morning hours of December 29, 2019, deputies with the Spotsylvania Sheriff’s Office responded to a disturbance at a residence in the 6800 block of Luce Lane in Spotsylvania County. Upon their arrival, they were encountered with a chaotic scene and an older male with severe injuries to his face, later identified as Mark Stanley. Upon entry into the home, deputies also encountered a male displaying a handgun quickly approaching the older gentleman. Deputies quickly engaged the male giving him commands to drop the weapon, which he did.
“Through the investigation deputies learned that Mark Stanley was here visiting family members for the holidays. One of the family members awoke early and decided to check on his two small children ages two and three years of age. When the family member opened the children’s bedroom door, he found the suspect, Mr. Stanley in the room with the children nude from the waist down.
“When the family member questioned what he was doing in the room, Mr. Stanley pushed the family member out of the room, then locking the door. The family member forced entry into the room and began beating Mr. Stanley. Mr. Stanley was transported to a local hospital for his injuries and later committed to Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond. The children were also taken to the hospital to be evaluated for injuries.“
As for Stanley, he was taken to hospital and then booked on two counts of indecent liberties and one count of domestic assault. Police confirmed that additional charges are pending, while the two children have been hospitalized for an evaluation.
The incident currently remains under investigation. The father hasn’t been charged.
I can’t imagine what I’d do if I found someone half naked in my children’s bedroom.
