A father was arrested for beating his young daughter in a Long Island park Wednesday night — a year after he pleaded guilty to abandoning her in a Manhattan Subway restaurant, cops said.
Stanley Frederique, 36, was accused of punching his 5-year-old several times, pulling her hair and grabbing her by the wrist in a park in Elmont, according to the Nassau County DA.
“I wanted to leave but my daughter didn’t,” Frederique told cops, according to the criminal complaint. “I pulled my daughter’s hair.”
Frederique had left the park by the time police arrived but he was found a short time later, according to CBS.
He was charged with second-degree assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
The young girl and her mother were taken to Winthrop University Hospital.
The incident occurred a year to the day after Frederique took a plea deal in Manhattan criminal court for leaving his daughter in a Subway restaurant during a drunken binge July 11, 2015.
He forgot about the girl until the next day. He copped to felony abandonment of a child and misdemeanor endangering the welfare of a child.
Wednesday’s deal stipulated that if he completed a substance-abuse program, he could withdraw his plea to the felony count but the misdemeanor conviction would remain on his record.
Frederique could now face two to four years in jail for violating the terms of his plea deal which stipulated that he could not get any new arrests.
Frederique is due in Manhattan court on June 28 for an update on his treatment and the Manhattan DA’s office said the new charges could be brought up then.
“I’m just happy to put this behind me and get back to my baby girl,” he said when he left the court a year ago.
