A Landrum man accused of kicking and punching a three-year-old girl has been arrested on charges of felony child abuse.

Antonio Jemal Rogers, 21, of 700 S. Randolph Ave., Apt. C-1, was arrested on Wednesday, Dec. 8.

A Landrum Police Department report said that the three-year-old girl’s grandmother took her to Spartanburg Regional Medical Center after finding her with bruises on her face on Dec. 1.

Rogers remained at the Spartanburg County Detention Center on Thursday night, on a $25,000 bond.
