A 36-year-old Wallaceburg man is in jail after the Chatham-Kent Police Service's child abuse unit investigated a complaint about an alleged incident on Dec. 30.

Police said on Jan. 4 a six-year-old boy reported to a school official that he had been assaulted.
Police said on the day of the offence the boy had been misbehaving and was disciplined by his mother.

She left the residence, leaving her son with his father.

Police said the boy again began to misbehave and his father allegedly punched him and grabbed him by the hair, lifting him off the ground.

Police said the boy suffered injuries to his head, including the loss of a small patch of hair.

The father is awaiting a bail hearing.
