Oak Harbor man accused of biting young child

An Oak Harbor man was arrested Saturday for allegedly biting a baby, according to the Oak Harbor police.

Capt. Bill Wilke said officers were initially called to a house on a report of a domestic dispute.

People at the scene reported to police that Fednel Hallam, 26, had bitten his girlfriend’s 21-month-old child on the face, according to police.

The bite allegedly left teeth marks, which responding officers could still see, according to Wilke.

The incident occurred after the mother of the toddler bathed the little girl and then set her on the bed next to Hallam’s toddler.

Hallam became upset when he walked into the bedroom and saw that his girlfriend’s child was biting his child on the face, Wilke said.

In response, Hallam bit the child, according to the captain.

Wilke said Hallam admitted to officers that he had bitten the child.

Hallam will likely be charged with assault in the fourth degree, Wilke said.
