A woman told police in northeast Arkansas that a man sprayed ammonia in her face during an altercation over the weekend.

Officers with the Jonesboro Police Department were called around 2:45 p.m. Saturday to a home in the 1400 block of Lakewood Drive in reference to a welfare check.

Authorities then spoke with the victim, who said that the father of her children, 35-year-old Eddie Marcus Higgins, came by her home to get items.

While waiting inside, the woman said, Higgins reportedly sprayed her in the face with a bottle of window cleaner, causing “burning” in her eyes.

Higgins was arrested on a charge of aggravated assault on a family or household member, according to a police report. He denied spraying ammonia at the woman’s face.

The victim’s two children were inside the house at the time and saw the altercation happen, the report states.

Higgins remained at the Craighead County jail as of Monday afternoon, records show.

Another example of cultural failure resulting in a total lack of respect for human life. Not just respect of the woman/victim in this case, but that of the children (by their own father!!) for how the attack on their mother will affect them. Article doesn't state ages of the children or how they're being cared for while their mom recovers.
