Police are searching for a father who, they said, abused his daughter after receiving a negative discipline report at school.

Police responded to the Wylds Road apartment Monday afternoon where they found the 6-year-old with redness and swelling to the face, neck, head and back.

Her father, 23-year-old George Pacheco, fled the home prior to police arrival. He faces charges of cruelty to children in the first degree.
