SCHOHARIE, N.Y. -- A Schoharie County man accused of assaulting an 8-year-old child by forcibly pulling out the child's permanent teeth, was indicted in the case on Wednesday.

The Schoharie County District Attorney's Office and the New York State Police announced the indictment of Steven D. Walker, 34, of Gallupville.

Walker was arrested on November 21, 2013 for assaulting an 8-year-old developmentally disabled child in his care by allegedly extracting three permanent teeth with a pair of pliers.

The indictment charges Walker with two counts of Assault in the second-degree and two counts of Endangering the Welfare of a child.

His arraignment in Schoharie County Court is pending.

A custodian account has been established for the child. Paul Brady, Commissioner of the Schoharie County Social Services has established an account at the NBT Bank Branch located at 271 Main Street, Schoharie, NY 12157.

Anyone interested in donating to this cause may do so at any NBT branch by sending in a check or money order made payable to "Paul Brady Custodian".

All proceeds will directly benefit the child.
