A 23-year-old Mandan man is expected to be charged this afternoon with two counts of child abuse.
A 5-year-old boy was taken to the hospital because he threw up several times.
The boy’s guardian said he had been beaten up by neighborhood kids, which resulted in injuries including bruising to the feet, hands, arms, and face.
However, when Mandan Police went to the residence for follow-up they found a 4-year-old boy with injuries as well.
He told police he fell down the stairs.
Later both children told Police, the suspect had hit them with an extension cord.
The man admitted to Police he had, in fact, abused them.
Child abuse charges are expected in Morton County this afternoon.
