A 28 year old man has been denied bail by the court, after allegedly beating his 9 year old son with an iron rod.
The TTPS says the Belmont resident was arrested and charged, following an investigation into allegations made by the boy.
According to the boy, his father got annoyed with him when he could not respond to questions asked about his homework and proceeded to hit him with an iron rod about his body.
The child’s aunt, who was at home at the time of the incident, intervened and made a report to police.
The suspect was subsequently charged on December 13th with one count of cruelty to a child.
