Man charged with abuse in girl's beating

A 33-year-old man is accused of beating a 13-year-old girl so severely she had bruises and cuts three days after the attack.

Javier Monserrate-Vazquez was arrested Thursday and charged with child abuse. According to the Dade City Police Department, Monserrate-Vazquez was disciplining the child, whose relationship to the suspect was not released due to the nature of the charges.

Monserrate-Vazquez, a barber who lives in Dade City, was released from the Pasco County jail Friday on $5,000 bail.
