A man accused of beating a child badly enough that he was taken to the hospital police said Thursday.
Milton Doggette, 27, was charged with one count of first-degree assault.
Police responded to a call and found a 10-year-old boy with multiple blunt-force injuries to the head.
The boy was airlifted to UAB Children’s Hospital in Birmingham for treatment and is expected to fully recover, police said.
Police did not disclose what led up to the assault but said they believe it was an isolated incident.
