Wyandotte County prosecutors filed child abuse, making a criminal threat and domestic battery charges Friday against Lamonte J. Brown.
The Kansas City Star reported that Brown’s 1- and 3-year-old children were held underwater in a bathtub Thursday night. Police said they managed to stop Brown after they were called to the apartment and heard a woman screaming.
Authorities said the children did not suffer serious injury and are in the custody of their mothers.
Brown is being held on a $1 million bond. It wasn’t immediately known whether he had an attorney.
