A disturbing incident has rocked the Liberty City neighborhood of Miami, as authorities have arrested Keyyun Anthony Bryant, 36, on charges of child abuse. Bryant stands accused of assaulting his girlfriend’s 5-year-old son allegedly because the child was watching the popular animated series “PAW Patrol,” which Bryant deemed as “for girls.”

Miami-Dade Corrections and Rehabilitation online records confirmed the arrest, which occurred on Tuesday. Bryant faces a felony count of child abuse, stemming from an incident on December 26, 2022, at a residence on Northwest Seventh Place.

According to reports from WPLG-TV, the incident unfolded when Bryant entered the room where the child and a witness were watching “PAW Patrol,” a show featuring a group of rescue dogs. Bryant allegedly grabbed the victim, striking him and admonishing him for being in the “girls’ room.”

Details revealed during a forensic interview conducted by the University of Miami Child Protection Team paint a harrowing picture. The victim recounted Bryant scratching him and threatening to take him to jail by wrapping his hands around the child’s neck.

Miami police detectives tracked down Bryant on Tuesday, where he denied the allegations. Bryant claimed innocence, stating that he had cared for his girlfriend’s children while she worked. He further alleged that the accusations were false, suggesting that the child’s biological father had made similar claims in the past.

As the investigation unfolds, Bryant remains in custody at the Turner Guilford Knight Correctional Center in Miami-Dade County, with no bail set as of Wednesday evening, according to online records.
