A Miami resident is charged with aggravated child abuse after allegedly throwing acid at a domestic quarrel.

MIAMI (FloridaToday.news) — In a disturbing domestic incident, Tenisha Geddis, 38, has been charged with multiple offenses including aggravated child abuse and assault with a deadly weapon. The incident took place at 9950 NW 26th Avenue, where Geddis and her sister got into an argument on Thursday.

According to the arrest report, upon arriving at the scene, the detective witnessed Geddis hit her sister in the face with a clenched fist. Despite police intervention, both the sister and Geddis initially refused to intervene or file a complaint, which led to a de-escalation of the situation.

However, a second quarrel broke out between Geddis and her sister, during which Geddis threw several unknown objects at her. In an unexpected turn of events, Geddis grabbed a bottle of HDX hydrochloric acid and pointed it at her sister, but missed. Unfortunately, the acid hit her sister’s daughter, damaging the front of the child’s body.

Law enforcement quickly separated all parties involved, apprehended Geddis, and subsequently placed her under arrest. The incident was reported to a domestic violence investigator who is aware of the case. MOVES (Miami-Dade County Victim Assistance Coordination Center) was contacted and the State’s Attorney’s Office (SAO) was informed of plans to reschedule a preliminary hearing due to systemic issues.
