(KAIR)--A Denison man goes to jail arrested on child abuse and domestic battery charges.
“At 2:30 on Wednesday afternoon our officers responded to a domestic disturbance in the 1900 block of U.S. 73,” said Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson. “A 26-year-old female and 2-year-old child were victims of battery. A 30-year-old suspect, Kevin Parker had fled the area but was apprehended by officers several blocks away.”
He says Parker fled on foot and witnesses were able to tell officers the direction he'd gone. They found him hiding in brush. He was arrested on charges of theft, abuse of a child and domestic battery.
“He faces domestic battery with the 26-year-old as well child abuse involving striking the 2-year-old child,” Wilson said. “The theft is the theft of a cell phone and some cash from the 26-year-old female.”
Parker was booked into the Atchison County Jail.
