A Manitowoc man has been arrested for charges related to child abuse. The MPD responded to a report of a man hitting a child on the 1200 block of Division Street just after 5:00 PM on Tuesday. When police spoke with a man at the residence, he revealed that he had two friends over, but wanted one to leave, as she was his ex-girlfriend. This led to a confrontation. During the scuffle, the man struck a child that was in the home. The man was taken into custody, and began yelling obscenities. He is facing charges of disorderly conduct and physical abuse of a child.
