A step-dick in Decatur is behind bars, accused of punching a little boy in the face.
Police said the 7-year-old told officers his Aaron Hagood, got mad at him for being out of his room.
Writing in the affidavit, Police Officer Megan Welge said the man told the grandfather the child had run into a doorway. But the grandfather, seeing a huge bruise covering the left side of the boy’s face from his eye to his ear, did not believe the story and called police.
The child described being picked up and thrown onto his bed, and said the man put a pillow over his face to cover up his screams, punched the boy and wrapped his hands around the boy's neck.
Welge said the boy’s injuries were consistent with what he said while the man’s door frame story did not add up. The man said the most he had done was shove the boy who had “over dramatized” the incident by colliding with the door frame of his bedroom.
Hagood is charged with aggravated battery to a child and domestic battery.
