Report: Albuquerque man reports himself for abuse

Posted: Updated:

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - An Albuquerque man is facing child abuse charges after deputies say he called authorities on himself to report he hit his two small children.

KRQE-TV reports ( that Johnnie Griego was arrested following his visitation with his 2-year-old and 5-year-old children this weekend.

According to a criminal complaint, the 29-year-old Griego dropped the children off with their mother Sunday and both had significant bruising on their faces. The complaint says one child had red finger impressions on his right cheek.

The children told deputies their father got angry with them for playing with his shampoo so he "kicked one of them in the heart and strangled him."

The mother also called authorities.

Griego was charged with two counts of child abuse.

It was not known if he had an attorney.
