Jasper County Sheriff Mitchel Newman said on Tuesday that a man is in custody, and accused of beating his 2-year-old child so severely with a belt that he left injuries on the toddler.
Sheriff Newman said the investigation began on Monday when workers at a Jasper day-care reported the injuries on the child.
According to Newman, Lieutenant Kenneth Stanley observed bruising on the boy's face, hands, buttocks and legs, and he also noted that the child's hands were swollen.
Newman said an investigator interviewed the child's father, and he confessed that he did assault the boy.
Precinct 3 Justice of the Peace Mike Smith issued a warrant for injury to a child, and the man was arrested. He is currently in the Jasper County Jail awaiting formal charges and arraignment, his name has not yet been released.
