Man accused of giving toddler brain damage.

Aaron Kenneth Charles Howell has been charged with an assault that police say has left a two-year-old boy with brain damage. Howell, 21, appeared before Judge David Saunders in the Christchurch District Court today and was remanded on bail to October 28. He entered no plea to the charge of causing the boy bodily harm with reckless disregard for safety.

Police allege the assault happened at a house at Otahuti, in rural Southland, on May 31. The boy was taken from Southland Hospital to Christchurch for an operation, and then on to Starship Hospital in Auckland, where he spent five weeks. He is now being cared for by family members in the North Island. Police say he is progressing well but has a brain injury.

Here’s hoping the little boy makes a full recovery and this scum-bucket is never allowed to see him again.
