Panama City Man Arrested for Child Abuse

PANAMA CITY-- A Panama City man is still in the Bay County jail on child abuse charges.

Panama City Police arrested 26 year old Albertano Cirilo-Cayetano Thursday at his home in the 18 hundred block of Molitor Avenue.

They say he was arguing with his wife, when he went outside and began attacking a car tire with a hammer.

When she and her 12 year old daughter went outside to calm him, Cirilo-Cayetano allegedly hit the girl twice in the back of the head with his hand, knocking her to the ground.

She was not seriously hurt.

A judge ordered Cirilo-Cayetano held on $2,200 bond.
