ROCK HILL, S.C. -- A Rock Hill man accused of forcing his young children to drink vodka faces child abuse charges, authorities said.
George Szraga, 32, was arrested Thursday and charged with three counts of unlawful conduct toward a child.
The investigation started in October when police received a complaint from a person who allegedly witnessed Szraga making the children – a 10-year-old girl, five-year-old boy and 2-year-old girl – drink vodka on several occasions, according to a Rock Hill police report.
The accuser told police that Szraga told the boy, “You’re not a man unless you drink it.”
Szraga also allegedly often confined the children to a bedroom, the report states.
