Dad injures 6-year-old son with Halloween sword; children taken into custody (Omaha, Nebraska)

UNNNAMED DAD has been taken into custody after police say he inflicted an inch-and-a-half laceration on the head of his 6-year-old son---with a Halloween sword? What is that anyway? And why were these four children taken to "Project Harmony"? Where is the mother of these kids? Is this a single or custodial dad flying under the radar again?


Father Injures 6-Year-Old With Halloween Sword

Omaha, NE - Officers say a six-year-old boy had an inch-and-a-half laceration on his head after his father struck him with a Halloween sword.

The father was cited for child abuse after the boy's school called police to investigate the injury.

The boy told police he had been kept home the day after he was hit, because of the injury on the side of his head.

The six-year-old and three siblings were taken to Project Harmony.
