(KAIR)--An investigation sent an Atchison man to jail for the alleged abuse of a young teenager.

According to Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson, his office began the investigation Sunday evening after a family member, who did not reside with the child, requested a welfare check regarding the teen.

Police went to a residence, and located the 13-year-old, who police say had marks, scratches, and bruises, on her body.

Taken into custody shortly after 10:15 Sunday night was 39-year-old Charles Holt, who lived in the same residence as the victim.

Holt was taken into custody for abuse of a child, and booked into the Atchison County Jail.

According to Wilson, the victim told investigators the injuries were the result of being struck with a board.

Wilson said the investigation is continuing.
