WOODRUFF, SC (WSPA) – Woodruff Police arrested a man on child abuse charges after the Medical University of South Carolina reported injuries to a 5-month-old child consistent with child abuse.
Due to the child being in Charleston, agents from the State Law Enforcement Division were called to assist.
34-year-old Joshua James Hurley was arrested Wednesday and charged with Child Abuse Resulting in Great Injury and Unlawful Neglect of a Child.
