UPDATE: Man Accused Of Putting Child In Dryer, Other Abuse

UPDATED Wednesday, April 18, 2012 --- 12:55 p.m.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Not guilty pleas have been entered to charges against a Milwaukee County man accused of spinning a young girl in a clothes dryer.

The 4-year-old child told investigators that Nicholas Fuchs put her in the dryer "a lot of times" and that it was dark and she was scared. A criminal complaint says Fuchs also broke the girl's arm and assaulted the child's 5-year-old brother. The children were 3 and 4 when the alleged abuse took place last year at the Oak Creek home Fuchs shared with their mother.

The complaint says Fuchs picked the boy up by his neck and threw him on a bed, pinched his genitals and would put the boy's feet in hot water if he urinated in his pants.

WTMJ-TV says Fuchs' attorney entered the pleas in court Wednesday.

MILWAUKEE (AP) -- A Milwaukee man is accused of spinning a young child in a clothes dryer, fracturing her arm and choking her brother.

Twenty-six-year-old Nicholas Fuchs is facing six charges, including recklessly endangering safety, false imprisonment and strangulation. Prosecutors say he repeatedly put his girlfriend's 4-year-old daughter in the dryer and turned it on because the girl wet her pants. Fuchs is also accused of fracturing the girl's arm.

A criminal complaint says Fuchs also injured the 5-year-old brother's genitals and picked the boy up by the neck, choking him. Prosecutors say the abuse occurred at the couple's Oak Creek apartment between January and October of last year.
