Torrence Little [BSO]

By Kevin Deutsch

A man was arrested in Margate Monday for beating a woman and child with a metal pole, inflicting injuries that may require surgery for one of the victims, court records show.

Torrence Little, 22, of 4827 NW 59th St. in Tamarac, came over to a female relative’s house in Margate, grabbed the metal pole from the woman’s hand, and began striking her in her head and body, continuing to strike her after she fell to the ground, according to an arrest affidavit.

When a 14-year-old female relative of Little’s came to the woman’s aid, Little beat her with the pole, too, hitting her in her forehead, records show.

During the pole attack, a second, unidentified subject pointed a gun at the child victim, according to Margate Police.

The beatings left one of the victims with ligament damage in her shoulder that may require surgery, the records state. It was not clear from the affidavit which victim suffered the shoulder injuries.

Later, Little came to the police department to give a statement about the events, police said. He was then arrested.

He was booked into the Broward Main Jail and released on a $15,000 bond.

  1. This is Torrence Little, I’ll like to plead innocent on my behalf of this story, what that lady said in that text was definitely not true and I’m here to speak the truth and nothing but the truth. That lady came out her house and attacked me first with the metal pole and I retaliated with self defense. She hit me multiple times continuously until I defended myself, prior to the incident she threw my clothes outside and told me to come grab them before she sold them and got the money for them, and she told a close relative to mine that when she seen me it would be on sight. So when I came to grab my clothes and leave she came out and approach me with a weapon and I was in fear of my life and I defended myself. I have all the proof and witness on my behalf to back me on my innocence, I’m not a evil person and won’t do such a thing to any individual I’m a military veteran and I don’t salute to violent crimes or any other bad activities. I never been arrested before nor but in handcuffs all this is a complete mistake, they got the wrong guy.

    • I believe you and I heard about it before the hit news but this article make it way way out there
