Christopher Z. Warren of Plymouth was arrested Monday after an unnamed complainant approached police with a juvenile and informed them that the child had been battered.
An investigation revealed that on Aug. 5, Warren had allegedly battered the dependent child during the evening hours, striking him on the back with his fists and hands, causing bruising. Police say the incident occurred in the 3000 block of North Michigan Road, but the name of the juvenile victim has not been released. Warren lives in a mobile home park in that block with his girlfriend, their 10-month-old son, her 10-year-old daughter, and his 8-year-old son.
Warren was arrested and charged with Battery as a Class D felony and Neglect of a Dependent as a Class C felony. His bond has been set at $20,000.
