CRESCENT CITY, FL -- A father in Crescent City faces a child cruelty charge after a 7-year-old child showed up to school Tuesday with a bruise on his face, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies were called to Middleton Burney Elementary about 10 a.m. Tuesday to look into a child abuse complaint, the Sheriff's Office said. That's after the 7-year-old's older brother told teachers their father had slapped each of them in the face several times for arguing.

The children said their father forced one of them to sleep on the back porch and the other on the front porch after the argument, according to PCSO.

The father, identified by deputies as Jose Doloroes Rodriguez, was arrested and booked into the Putnam County Jail. He's being held without bond on one count of child cruelty, deputies said.
