“Adult” Man Punches 6-year-old Boy For Name-calling

JAVIER-DWAYNE-ROUSE-largeAnd here he is, Ladies & Gentlemen! Our Loser Of The Week — looking a little sad in his booking mugshot. And rightfully so.

Meet Javier Dwayne Rouse!

Rouse, 33, of Mesa, Arizona has been arrested after allegedly punching his girlfriend’s six-year-old son in the chest at a daycare center in Mesa. Reports say that Rouse allegedly hit the boy after the child called another kid “an unacceptable name,”.

Also, according to an official police report, surveillance video of the incident shows the child flying “approximately four feet in the air” before landing directly on his buttocks and sliding up the wall, Geobeats reported.

Rouse was arrested last week on suspicion of aggravated assault on a vulnerable child.

Police said he admitted hitting the child, but “didn’t think he punched the child hard like an adult would be hit.”
