(WMC) - Memphis police are searching for a father who is accused of abusing his four young children multiple times. He is accused of picking them up by their necks and throwing them across the room.
On Tuesday, police issued an arrest warrant for Sharrad Sharp, 31, on child abuse and neglect charges.
The 11-year-old told investigators her father has "beaten, choked, and kicked her all over her body."
The 8-year-old told police that her father picked up the children by their necks and threw them across the room on different occasions, that he once "hung her upside down on the door by her feet and another time by her neck," and that he once pushed her younger brother's head under water while bathing him.
The 5-year-old told police that her father beat her with a belt, leaving bruises, and that she witnessed him put her younger brother's face under water.
Philmore's bond is set at $35,000. She is due in general sessions court on August 28th.
