A Lebanon father has been charged with aggravated child abuse of his 2-month-old child after an indictment handed down by a Wilson County grand jury.

John Avery Manus, 41, is being held in the Wilson County Jail after his arrest Aug. 15 on a $25,000 bond.

Lebanon police and the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency responded to a call on Lake Street in May that required the child to be sent to a medical facility because of injuries. The call also led to an investigation. Further details about the child’s injuries weren’t released by police.

A court date is scheduled Sept. 26.
