A Newton man is charged with child endangerment after allegedly throwing a fork at a child and causing a puncture wound.
Todd A. Revell, 40, was arrested after authorities were called at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday to the 500 block of East 12th Street South.
Officers met with the victim and her mother following the incident. The victim said Revell intentionally threw a fork at her while she was sitting at a table, causing a puncture wound. The victim said she and Revell had been arguing.
After the initial incident, the victim left the table and was instructed by Revell to return to her seat. When the victim refused, Revell allegedly slapped the wound with an open hand.
Officers identified a puncture wound with visible blood and redness around it on the victim.
Revell was taken to the Jasper County Jail where he was released on $5,000 bond.
