NEWNAN, Ga. – A mother is facing charges after allegedly using a steel wool cleaning pad to take makeup off her son’s face.
Veridana Pardo Meo Erbskorn told officers that her 12-year-old son was going through a “rock and roll stage” and started dressing differently and wearing makeup, according to WXIA.
Authorities say Erbskorn became upset and tried to wash the eyeliner and makeup off her son’s face with a steel wool cleaning pad.
“You know how the Brillo pad has that kind of blue soap when you start scrubbing? That was all on his face, his ears and everything and the redness from the metal scratching,” Yarbrough said.
Experts say the child did suffer injuries from the cleaning pad, but they are unsure whether those injuries are permanent.
Erbskorn was arrested on one count of battery and two counts of child cruelty.
