WARNING DISTURBING VIDEO
Justin Whittington, 23, was arrested on Friday in Bakersfield, California, and charged with child cruelty after the video of the alleged abuse surfaced online.
A man has been arrested after shocking footage went viral of an adult punching a toddler in the face so hard he falls to the ground.
CCTV cameras caught the moment a man chased a helpless toddler around a Barkersfield market in California, US.
He smacks the young child in the face with such force he jolts back and crumples to the ground.
The man walks off before what appears to be the toddler’s mother helps him up as he holds his face and cries.
