Dad charged with assaulting 11-year-old son for over a year, threatening to kill him with knife (Allentown, Pennsylvania)

Dad LESTER LEON LEE has assaulted this child for "about a year"? And the child victim was the one who had to report this to the police? Somehow I'm thinking there is no mother in this home, or she would have been charged with child neglect or something. So is Lee a single dad? If so, how and why?

A 49-year-old man was charged with aggravated assault and related charges for beating his 11-year-old son and threatening to kill him, according to court records.

Lester Leon Lee, of Allentown, allegedly, punched, choked, kicked and held a knife to his son for more about a year, according to court documents. The victim told police he was "sick of lying for his father," and reported the assaults, according to court documents.

Lee was charged Thursday with aggravated assault, simple assault and endangering the welfare of a child. He was released after posting $40,000 bail.

The victim suffered a laceration from a knife being held against him and a fracture to his hand from being kicked by his father. The victim said his father would also punch him in the face when he got mad and knocked out one of his teeth.
