A Manitowoc man is behind bars after he allegedly struck a child. Police were called to Aurora Health Center in the 3500 block of Dewey Street at around 10:00 AM on Sunday, when a child was brought to their care, and the mother claimed the child’s father was responsible for the injuries. Officers found the father at his home in the 2500 block South 23rd Street, and questioned him about the incident. The man admitted to striking the child because they said “no” to him. The 31 year old man was taken into police custody and charged with one count of Physical Abuse of a Child.
