Man charged with assault on a child for allegedly putting hot sauce in 3-year-old boy's mouth

SALEM, Mass. - Prosecutors allege a man living in a Massachusetts hotel put hot sauce in the mouth of his girlfriend's 3-year-old son and then taped it shut.

Christopher Delcid was held on $250,000 bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday to assault and battery on a child and child abandonment.

The boy was found alone in the Danvers hotel room Tuesday. The child told police that bruises on his body were caused by his "daddy" who hit him with a shoe and a belt as punishment. The 21-year-old Delcid isn't the child's biological father.

Police responded to the hotel after a call from a relative.

The boy's mother, 20-year-old Katherine Rodriquez, is held on $100,000 bail after pleading not guilty Thursday to permitting assault and battery on a child and abandoning a child.
