LIBERTY — A recent parolee was arrested Thursday morning in Liberty after police say he assaulted his 9-year-old son.
Liberty police were called to the Spring Street apartment around 12:30 a.m. and found the boy bleeding from both nostrils. The boy told police his father, Eulogio Pinto, 42, had slapped him repeatedly. Pinto was recently released from prison after serving time on a parole violation on previous felony convictions for drugs and weapons charges, police say.
The boy was treated by Liberty ambulance and released to his grandparents.
Pinto was charged with misdemeanor assault, endangering the welfare of a child and obstructing governmental administration. He was in lockup awaiting arraignment Thursday morning.
