Kendrick Wood

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama man is accused of pushing a television stand that landed on a toddler, causing the boy to lose three toes.

The Tuscaloosa News reported Wednesday that 23-year-old Kendrick Antwan Woods was charged with second-degree assault Dec. 20.

Court records show Woods was involved in an argument with his girlfriend at University Manor on Aug. 5. According to police records, the woman asked him to leave the apartment.

A Tuscaloosa police investigator wrote that Woods then came back into her apartment and pushed over the TV stand, chopping off the child’s toes.

The woman told officers Woods was aware the boy was standing in front of the TV stand at the time. It’s unclear if Woods has a lawyer who could comment.
