GLOVERSVILLE, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Police say a father is being accused of hitting his son with a broom handle after bruises were found on his body.

Officials say they were advised by Fulton County DSS of a possible child abuse case. It was alleged that an 11-year-old male had bruises about his lower body, possibly caused by his father, Daniel Williams.

After a joint investigation with DSS, it was learned that Williams became angry with his son and struck him several times with a broom handle. Detectives arrested 29-year-old Williams of Fulton Street in Gloversville. He was charged with Endangering the Welfare of a Child, and Attempted Assault.

Williams was processed at the Gloversville Police Department and sent to the Fulton County Correctional Facility in lieu of $250 cash bail. He is due to appear in Gloversville City Court on a later date.
