Man charged with trying to drown kids

January 14, 2012


— A 23-year-old man is charged with attempting to drown his two young children in Kansas City, Kan.

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.
