Police: Man arrested for pulling teeth from foster child

GALLUPVILLE - Police have arrested a Gallupville man after allegedly pulling three permanent teeth from the mouth of a mentally disabled eight year old girl.

State Police say the girl complained at school of mouth pain.  It was during an exam when the child's dentist had discovered that three of her permanent teeth had been forcibly removed with a tool similar to pliers.

The dentist reported the incident to Child Protective Services in Schoharie County.  34-year-old Stephen Walker was arrested, and the child was removed from the home.

Walker was arraigned with felony assault and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.  He was remanded to the Schoharie County Jail on $10,000 bail.

He is due back in court November 25.
