Menomonie man allegedly uses broom sticks, metal bars as form of punishment

Dunn County (WQOW) – Child abuse charges have been filed against a Menomonie man who allegedly used things like broom sticks and metal bars as a form of discipline.

Bee Yang was charged with two counts of child abuse and one count of causing mental harm to a child in Dunn County Court.

According to the criminal complaint, Yang would use broom sticks, wires and metal exercise bars as punishment.

On another occasion, one victim said they had been punched so hard in the jaw they couldn’t eat for three days.

When interviewed, officers say Yang became upset about being told how to enforce discipline.

He’s free on a $2,000 signature bond. If convicted of all charges, he faces a maximum penalty of nearly 25 years in prison.
