Shawn FoltzShawn Foltz Shawn Foltz MOORHEAD, Minn. (AP)– A Moorhead guy is accused of rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in the eyes of his 2-month-old daughter and keeping her from breathing until she turned blue.

Thirty-one-year-old Shawn Foltz is charged with overlook of a child, malicious penalty of a child and 2 counts of third-degree attack, all felonies.

KFGO radio reports that Foltz admitted to private investigators that while he was at work he considered methods to damage the toddler. Authorities state he also snapped her with a towel, burned her by spraying warm water in her face and threw fireworks at her.

Foltz apparently implicated the victim’s 3-year-old sibling of triggering the injuries by hitting her with a toy gun.

Foltz’s lawyer, Rex Tucker, could not be reached on Sunday.
