— A Fayetteville man has been arrested after he allegedly burned and choked his daughter because she was wearing makeup, police said Thursday.

Mauricio Victor Green, 48, of 2321 Dartmouth Drive, is charged with intentional child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, assault by strangulation and assault on a female. He was released after posting a $25,000 bond.

According to arrest warrants, Green put the 15-year-old girl's hand on the burner of a stove, put his forearm on her neck until she almost passed out and later put a gun to her head because she wouldn't tell him who had put makeup on her. In a separate incident, he beat the teen with part of a vacuum cleaner, warrants state.

    Too right. Allegedly as per the accusations of a 15 year old female. Sure, it may have happened (and if it did in fact happen, this guy deserves whatever is coming to him)....but, I think I'll wait before casting stones.

    It doesn't matter what the WHOLE story is Marilyn, NOTHING gives anyone the right to do anything like this to another person. I was in an abusive relationship and had to do unthinkable things and was beat to the point I had to hide from my own family. Abuse has nothing to do with religion (Martha), caring (Marilyn) and David I am not sure what you mean by your comment "He's not a dad. At best he's a father. At worst he's a mother." He is none of these, he is a monster for thinking it is ok to do something like this to anyone for ANY reason. I am a mother of 7 and would never treat any of my children this was much less the 1 girl we have.

    Yea, Marilyn. Probably intentionally stuck her own hand on the stove and choked herself. Yea. Perfectly plausible.

    Change the headline. He's not a dad. At best he's a father. At worst he's a mother.

    I'm just saying, we really don't know all the circumstances yet. I said it was extreme, but I have known quite a few teens that have fabricated stories like these. Wait until we here the whole story.

    I can not believe there are people defending this man because he "cares"!! Are you kidding me??? Did it ever occur to you that he thinks of her as HIS possession, or worse yet, he has molested her & THIS is why he is so worried about her wearing make up & therefore looking pretty for other males. Geez, this is not care or love but a deranged man who doesn't need to be a father!!! Poor girl!

    I cannot believe they let him out. Where is his daughter supposed to go? Is he prohibited from returning home? Poor child!
