PIKE COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

A Pike County grand jury has indicted a McComb man on multiple counts of child abuse days after video surfaces of the man violently striking a young girl.

The indictment states Alex Mead physically tortured a minor child by lifting her by her hair and shaking her, striking her face, smothering her, and choking her.

In all, he's charged with eight counts of child abuse and two counts of felonious abuse of a vulnerable person.

Deputies believe this happened between January and February of this year.
