Police: Utah women poured hot sauce in boy’s eyes

WEST VALLEY CITY, Utah (AP) — Police in Utah say two women duct-taped a teenage boy, forced him to use marijuana and poured hot sauce in his eyes to punish him.

West Valley City police say the 33-year-old woman and 38-year-old woman began abusing the older woman’s son two years ago when he was 12.

Police say the women tried to force the boy to smoke marijuana and poured alcohol over his face and mouth while prying his mouth open.

Authorities say that on one occasion in 2011, the boy broke a glass dish and one woman pushed the boy onto the glass and poured Tabasco sauce in his eyes and face to punish him.

The women were arrested on multiple felony child abuse and endangerment charges.
