OCEASIDE, N.Y. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — A husband is accused of pushing his wife's hands into a boiling deep fat fryer during an argument at a Chinese restaurant they own.

Long Island police say the couple's two children, ages 12 and 14, were present during the incident Sunday night.

They say the couple was arguing when the defendant grabbed his wife by the hair and pushed her toward the deep fat fryer.

Authorities say the 39-year-old victim suffered second-degree burns to her hands.

Police arrested the 39-year-old defendant on charges of assault and endangering the welfare of a child. He's scheduled to be arraigned on Monday.

It wasn't immediately clear if he had a lawyer who could comment on the charges.

Police didn't release the name of the restaurant.

Last year here in North Texas, a group of kids tortured a dog by pouring hot grease on it. Against the odds, the dog survived and later trained to become service dog.
